The UK’s largest independent industrial paints manufacturer, HMG Paints Ltd, has further expanded their distribution network across the country.

HMG Paints now have a new partner in South East England, Kent Refinishing Supplies Ltd (KRS). The independent automotive refinishing distributor will be suppliers of HMG’s market leading Automotive, Industrial and Agricultural coatings. 

Established in 2018, Kent Refinishing have quickly established themselves in the bodyshop refinishing market, offering a wide range of products from paint, consumables, and car body panels, to tools and equipment. To compliment their range, KRS have taken on HMG’s sought-after UNIT LITE tinting system which provides HMG distributors with the facilities to provide colour matching services for customers, in a wide range of HMG Paints’ products. The offering brings a wealth of new colour options for OEM, Commercial Vehicle, Agricultural and Industrial businesses in the Kent area. “Being a new business, we are pleased to have a partnership with HMG at this early stage and are looking forward to the future,” said the Directors of Kent Refinishing Supplies Ltd. 

By adopting the UNIT LITE tinting system KRS are also able to take advantage of HMG Paints’ vast colour library, boasting tens of thousands of different colour formulations, including RAL, BS, Pantone, NCS, OEM, commercial fleet, agricultural machinery and house colours. 

Managing Director of family business HMG Paints, John Falder, commented on HMG’s countrywide distribution network saying “Being a family business and independent organisation, HMG Paints is proud to be able to provide flexible service, on and off-site technical support and training, as well as marketing expertise to support distributors and their businesses in satisfying end customers. Our distributor base success is down to the relationships with customers just like KRS, whose values and dedication to their customers is exactly the same as the HMG family.”  

Based in Manchester, HMG Paints rely on a loyal, countrywide distribution network to supply and service previously unreachable customers, and expand the HMG Paints brand. New distributors are selected based upon their reputation, expertise and local knowledge.
