Paint pioneer TeknosPro is on the lookout for complementary merchants

TeknosPro is a new brand of science-led paints from Teknos

Leading innovator in paint for the professional, and backed by the established Teknos Group (, TeknosPro, is looking for merchants and retailers to complement the company’s online business.

TeknosPro is a new brand of science-led paints from Teknos, the successful Scandinavian organisation which boasts a pedigree second-to-none. It builds on Teknos’ established position as the leading supplier of specialist joinery coatings in the UK and Ireland and comprises a portfolio of multi-surface products designed solely for professional decorators.

The impressive collection features specialist finishes for internal walls, metal and wood and has been designed for new build and maintenance projects. The TeknosPro range is easy to apply, based on low-odour, quick drying, water-based technology, and is supplied with Teknos’ ‘Paint with Pride’ quality stamp. All Teknos products are produced in modern factories with quality and environmental management systems certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

“TeknosPro is a new concept in brush-applied coatings for the painting and decorating industry and is competing in a market dominated by established brands,” comments Teknos General Manager, David Hutchison.

Despite this, TeknosPro distributors will have a unique advantage, as they will be able to offer a professional maintenance product that is guaranteed to be compatible with a variety of factory-finished joinery products. Teknos is already very well established as an industrial coatings supplier. Painting and decorating contractors will, therefore, be familiar with components such as doors, windows and cladding panels being delivered to site already factory-finished with Teknos products.

“With its range of high-tech paints and coatings, TeknosPro is targeting the top end of the market with high quality products for the professional user. Our distributors will have exclusivity in their regions and won’t be in competition with their neighbours. We are avoiding the big chains because a focus on volume inevitably means a race to the bottom on price and we are confident that the quality of our products match a premium price tag”, explains David.
