AkzoNobel boosts Dulux Decorator Centre network in the UK to 203 stores

Published: 2 May 2018 - Kiran Grewal

Akzo Nobel has acquired two businesses in the UK to enhance its network of Dulux Decorator Centres and further improve the service and support offered to its trade customers.

The deals involve the purchase of Whites Trade Paints, based in South East London, and Cambrian Decorators Supplies (C.D.S.) Limited, which trades as The Colour Centre. The latter operates from eight stores in Newport, Swansea, Cardiff, Bristol, Bracknell, Swindon, Gloucester and Birmingham.

 

“These excellent additions to the Dulux Decorator Centre network will enable us to further develop our business in South East London, South Wales, the West Country and the Midlands,” explained Alistair McAuley, the recently appointed managing director of AkzoNobel’s Decorative Paints business in the UK and Ireland.

“I’ve been on both sides of these deals in the past and I’m excited to see Whites Trade Paints and The Colour Centre stores join our business as we continue to proudly support our customers in the UK. We are delighted to welcome our new colleagues to the AkzoNobel family.”

Both businesses will continue under their current trading format, operating under the leadership of John Henderson, Dulux Decorator Centre managing director.
