HMG Paints Opens New Training and Innovation Center in Manchester

December 18, 2012

HMG Paints recently opened The Newton Centre and The Riverside Building at their manufacturing site in Collyhurst, Manchester, UK. The new facilities provide the company with a brand new center of excellence, focusing on innovation, manufacturing, development and training. HMG is the UK’s largest industrial paint manufacturer.

In November 2011, the company were selected to receive a grant from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund. Over the last year, the Government support has helped preparation of facilities begin, specifically catering for a pilot program focusing on the development and manufacture of water-based coatings. The Newton Centre, named after the company’s long-serving and recently retired production manager, John Newton, will be the focus of this recent investment.

John Falder, HMG Paints’ managing director, and recently appointed chairman of the British Coatings Federation Industrial Coatings Council, acknowledges the importance of constantly moving business forward. “HMG Paints has a rich history of innovation and the newly opened facilities really emphasise our ambitions to constantly develop the organisation. Our new high performance, water borne coatings department shows our commitment to developing and manufacturing innovative coatings that will benefit our customers and the environment.”
