Sandtex adds colour to Hull murals

Crown Paints played its part in the addition of four murals across Hull in 2020 by donating paint to local artist Andy Pea. The company, which manufactures some of its most popular products at its facility in Hull, has previously donated paint to numerous deserving local community causes through its Crown Decorating Centre located on Stoneferry Road. Crown was keen to work with Hull-based street artist Andy Pea having already worked with him several times since the company supported the Hull City of Culture campaign in 2017, and so donated Sandtex Trade products in various colours in order to complete the four murals located across the city last year.

Crown calls all decorators to support Can Back

Crown Decorating Centres is calling on all decorators in the UK to get involved in its Can Back scheme and play their part in helping to recycle every paint can sold through the network.  Through the Can Back scheme, which Crown has successfully run since 2013, CDC account holders are able to drop off their empty paint cans to any one of 120 Crown Decorating Centres across the country, free of charge. And this year, the scheme has been extended to include paint cans from any manufacturer, not just Crown Paints products. The only stipulation is that cans must be completely clean and dry to be accepted. Working in partnership with social enterprise company, NIMTECH, which is based at Crown’s two manufacturing plants in Darwen and Hull, all the paint cans returned through the scheme will be fully recycled. In the last 12 months, 200 tonnes of cans were recycled by NIMTECH through the Can Back scheme and the ambitious target this year is to collect and recycle every single can sold through the CDC network.

Crown Paints looks to the future with new warehouse in Hull

Crown Paints has commenced work on a new state-of-the-art raw material and packaging warehouse facility at its Hull manufacturing base. The warehouse, which will be located at Crown Paints’ Sculcoates Lane site, represents a £4.4 million investment by Crown Paints, and will create an additional 4,265 sq m of storage space for raw materials and packaging. Construction is ongoing, with the facility expected to be complete in July 2021. Crown Paints’ operation in Hull is the company’s major UK water-based paint production site. The new facility will allow the paint manufacturer to consolidate its operations from several older buildings into one modern facility – and allows Crown to repurpose these existing buildings to accommodate future growth. The building of the new warehouse underlines Crown’s commitment to its UK production, both at this site in Hull and at its headquarters in Darwen, Lancashire.
