Rapid sales growth sees Hull firm relocate

Rapid sales growth sees Hull firm relocate
Calum Doig, Operations Director of New Guard Coatings Group.

Hull’s Industrial Paint Supplies (IPS) has opened a new premise following rapid growth in sales over recent years.

The move coincides with increasing IPS stock holding by more than five times to an impressive 8,000 sq ft.

The company, part of the New Guard Coatings Group, said that this means a greater range of products for local customers.

Further, it said, also means faster deliveries and more support for their nationwide clients.

The new site on Hedon Road in Hull will include state-of-the art training and presentation facilities, these will allow technical and training courses to be hosted at the address.

To further support clients, four tinting machines will be sited at the address delivering the exact products that their clients want, when they want them.

Calum Doig, Operations Director for New Guard Coatings Group, said: “This is an exciting time for New Guard Coatings Group with our expansion plan now in full swing.”

He added: “We’ve been at our current premises on Lincoln Street for a number of years now, which in all honesty, we have truly out-grown. The move to Hedon Road could not have come at a better time.”

The company said that the Hedon Road site allows IPS to support the needs of its clients which are often very specific and bespoke.

This, it said, is an important move for the whole New Guard Coatings Group as they focus on being a ‘much more than just a sale’ group.

Mr Doig said: “With the additional floor space to increase our already impressive stock holding capabilities, the relocation creates a fantastic opportunity for both IPS and the whole of the New Guard Coatings Group as we continue to set the standard in the distribution of protective coatings industry.”
