Valspar partners with B&Q

Published:  19 November, 2012

LONDON: Valspar, a US-based paint supplier, is to sell its paint range through B&Q in the UK. The partnership expands Valspar's presence in the UK and Ireland and will bring consumers more choices for interior and exterior paints that can be custom tinted to virtually any colour.

Previously, B&Q's stores offered primarily ready-mix paints in a smaller assortment of colours and textures. The new retail concept will be rolled out to all 350 locations throughout 2013.

"Our partnership with B&Q is another important step in expanding our global consumer paint business and bringing innovative paint solutions to new retail partners and markets," said Gary Hendrickson, chairman and chief executive officer, Valspar.

"We're looking forward to helping B&Q grow the paint category and making its stores the destination of choice in the U.K and Ireland for consumers' painting projects."
