We are one of the South East’s leading suppliers of paint and refinishing products.  Although our main trade is the vehicle repair industry, we also supply customers in the furniture, boat and industrial trades.


A well established business that has been trading for over 25 years, we have built up a highly regarded reputation, forming good relationships with customers and suppliers. 


We stock a large range of products from a range of suppliers, including car paint, primers, lacquers, abrasives, masking tape, protective clothing, tools and equipment etc.


Additionally we specialise in custom colour matching, this can be done by identifying a code or matching a sample to the colour.  We are able to mix & match almost any colour for cars, RAL and British Standard Colours. It should be noted that colour matching can be timely and complex depending on the sample.
