Kent Blaxill acquires Anglia Coatings Solutions

Published:  07 September, 2010

BURY ST EDMUNDS: East Anglian builders’ merchant Kent Blaxill has acquired the business of Anglia Coatings Solutions, a company founded and run by Dean Tilford.

He will be joining Kent Blaxill as specialist coatings consultant based at Kent Blaxill’s Bury St Edmunds branch, but covering the whole of East Anglia. He will be advising on coatings used in a large range of industries such as farming, steel erection, hospitals, schools, catering and boatyards.

Kent Blaxill operations director John Ford said: “Anglia Coatings Solutions, based just south of Norwich, had found it difficult to continue expanding and Kent Blaxill offers Dean the structure to continue that business growth. Dean brings a substantial portfolio of customers, as well as stock, to Kent Blaxill. He has a wealth of knowledge about specialist paints and coatings.

“As well as consolidating all our specialist coatings products at Bury St Edmunds we will be adding Pronto Paints to our existing Coovar and Rustoleum specialist ranges.”
