EXCLUSIVE: Color Expert buys Robert J Hall
The agreement will see Color Expert take sole ownership of both HallsBeeline and Stanley decorating products divisions, including offices, warehouses and manufacturing facilities on both Leeds and Morecambe.

Family-owned Color Expert is the second largest decorating tool manufacturer in Europe and has more than 110 years experience in the manufacture and supply of painting and decorating tools.

The immediate benefit to Robert J Hall Ltd will be an injection of working capital, which will enable the company to increase stock levels on all products, including HallsBeeline's paintbrush and AFS ranges and Stanley's MaxFinish and Dynagrip ranges.

Marketing director for Robert J Hall Ltd, Philippa Pawson said:
"Becoming part of Color Expert is an exciting move for us and we are looking forward to working with our new colleagues to ensure that the company goes from strength to strength.

"Our first priority now is to focus on continuing to work with our customers to improve service levels and help increase their profit margins further."
