Seamless Coatings moves to bigger premises
A Cradley Heath firm which supplies North Sea oil rigs with waterproof coating products is expanding in a bid to attract passing traders and D.I.Y enthusiasts through its doors.
Seamless Coatings, based on the Oak Street Industrial Estate for the last six years, is relocating to larger premises, on the same estate, but fronting Reddal Hill Road.
Historically the company, which counts local authorities, housing associations, property companies, surveyors and architects among its clients, has supplied directly to large contractors. Now the company is hoping the new premises will build its presence with traders and D.I.Y enthusiasts.
As well as continuing to work with lager companies, the new premise, which opens next month (3rd July), will house a trade counter.
Seamless Coatings' products are used to make roofs, walls, walkways and floors waterproof.
The owners of Seamless Coatings' said: "These are difficult times for the housing and construction sector, so it is very pleasing that we are in a position to expand.
"We hope local tradesman will use the trades counter to get their supplies at an affordable price. It will be a real benefit to builders, roofers and people doing their own DIY jobs.
"We want people to know we're not just here for larger contractors but smaller businesses in the area too. As a local company ourselves we feel this is important."
The High Street-facing unit will also have more storage space, allowing the company to grow.
