Innovation the Theme as Nova Welcomes New Member at Meeting in Israel

Published April 28, 2014

The Nova Paint Club recently held a meeting of its board and marketing directors in Tel Aviv, Israel. At the meeting, hosted by Tambour of Israel, HMG / Little Greene from the UK was elected to full membership of the Nova Paint Club, taking the Group’s membership to 12 companies with 73 sites and operations in more than 80 countries. HMG / Little Greene is the UK’s leading independent industrial and decorative paint brand and main board director John Fenton said: “Joining Nova is a great honor and a fantastic opportunity. We look forward to playing a full role in the Group’s activities in the future.”

Michael Dayan, current president of Nova and CEO of Tambour said: “The expansion of the Nova Paint Club with HMG / Little Greene’s membership is symbolic of our ambition as we enter our 31st year. From Tambour’s perspective, this meeting’s theme of innovation is perfectly in tune with the expanded horizons of both our company and the wider Nova Group.”

At the meeting, Nova member companies’ marketing directors met to discuss current and future cooperation in projects such as color trends and documentation. Under the banner of “innovating to surge ahead”, they received expert presentations and were united in optimism for the future as investments in new plant and customer services were revealed.

The board directors focused on “innovation and sustainability” and noted the world first of member company CIN, which has adopted a groundbreaking colour language to help colourblind people “see” colour. This kind of innovative thinking was addressed by keynote speaker Dave Allen, founder of the world’s largest innovative consultancy, What If!

The meeting also gave delegates the opportunity to visit Tambour’s impressive new concept store and discuss in more detail some of the significant trends in the global coatings industry in 2014.
