Valspar partners with B&Q and Screwfix to offer exclusive trade range

Valspar Trade has announced it is launching a range of new trade products aimed at professional decorators with the two major retailers nationwide.

The Sherwin-Williams-owned brand has a long-standing exclusive relationship with B&Q, since it was positioned as one of the retailer's flagship paint brands back in 2012 and it will now roll-out its Trade ranges to Screwfix and B&Q stores across the UK.

Exclusive to B&Q is the new Valspar Trade solvent-based trim paint, which will be available in eggshell, high gloss and satin, in one-litre and 2.5-litre sizes.

Valspar Trade contract matt is newly available in Screwfix branches in 10-litre tubs of white and magnolia, and the brand will launch a water-based trim paint in the chain September 2018, which will be available in high gloss, eggshell and satin in one-litre, 2.5-litre and five-litre sizes.

Speaking about the launch, Valspar Trade brand manager Pippa Scurlock-Davies said: “We have built a strong reputation for providing the UK’s largest range of over 2.2 million colours, and our unbeatable colour matching service helps give customers the freedom to be creative. Our trade range has the same strong colour-matching capabilities and its optimum performance enables it to meet the demands of household life, while being from a name that customers can trust.”
