ProKolor announces the opening of its new production and warehouse facility to establish production of their water-based PVCu coatings in the UK; reducing lead times and improving service levels to their expanding UK customer base.
Graham White, Commercial Director of ProKolor, commented;
As exclusive UK distributors of Berger-Zobel’s market-leading and ecologically sustainable Zowo-Plast® product range, we have initially operated with a direct import model supplying finished products manufactured at the Berger-Zobel facilities in Germany directly to our UK customers. This cost-effective model has been very successful in allowing us to build market share for our highly sustainable water-based PVCu paints with very competitive prices and lead-times.
Our market success to date and the growing pipeline of demand and new opportunities that we are now responding to, makes this exactly the right time to invest in our new production facilities and to further improve the service that we can offer our UK customers.
The primary benefit that we will immediately bring to our customers will be to improve our standard lead-time to a 48-hour service. If required, we will also be able to offer a next day service in response to high-priority orders. Delivery lead-times will also be assured as we remove the customs’ related processes from our customer supply chain.
Mike Blowers, Technical Director of ProKolor added;
This is a very exciting development for our business which will not only allow us to deliver improved service levels but also to work more closely with our customers and bring more tailored solutions to meet their specific needs.
The Zowo-plast ZP 2400 series coatings from Berger-Zobel is Europe’s leading, high-performance water-based coating system specifically developed for application onto PVCu construction products. As a high-build, 1K system, ZP 2400 is very efficient to apply straight from the can in a single wet coat to create a true colour finish. Addition of hardeners and diluents are not required which leads to a significant reduction in process waste as well as the product having a 12 month shelf life.
