Brenntag Colours and Coatings & Construction teams stepping up to support our UK and Ireland Customers


Chem Research {1} has confirmed that the Covid-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the sales revenues of leading coatings producers during 2020. In the UK and Ireland many smaller customers scaled back the production of finished products and paused development projects due to the furloughing of R&D staff and the cessation of new product launches into key industrial markets.

However, as companies start to ramp up production output to meet strengthening demand, Brenntag UK & Ireland are ready to support the customer-base with any sourcing or formulation enquiries that customers might have in order to accelerate the introduction of new products and regain sales.

Brenntag has an extensive portfolio of products for the Coatings and Construction sectors including resins, additives, functional fillers, solvents and coloured pigments and we are always happy to assist customers improve performance using our Coatings and Construction laboratories located in the UK and continental Europe.

Our technologists are able to engage with customers and offer technical and regulatory guidance around meeting the compliance, performance and aesthetic requirements of particular coatings.

Moreover, at our Brenntag Colours laboratory located in Halifax, Yorkshire, UK, we are able to undertake specific customer briefs to optimise finished product performance whilst being sensitive to finished product cost considerations.

Finally, our expert Business Development Managers and extensive sales teams are always happy to answer any regulatory or commercial concerns that customers may have about Brexit and the up-coming end of the transition period – on the 31st December 2020.
