Nancefield Paints have become a major player in the refinish supply business since starting their own brand and production site way back in 1991. The Premchem brand is now well represented and delivers solid performance results for their loyal band of body shop and DIY repair customers, says Neeresh Hiralal, company CEO.

Last month the company expanded yet again with the opening of another two stores in Soweto, adding to their 23 outlets of their self-owned and partner operations across the whole of South Africa.

“The product mix developed by Nancefield Paints works across various pricing levels from the Premchem brand. From our fully imported Hymax range from Lebanon to the Mido range from our Egyptian supplier. Clients are mainly repairing the great many uninsured drivers and our offer includes top notch performing abrasives from Klingspor and Farécla polishing systems,” says Neeresh.

With major investment in infrastructure over the years the production paint factory can keep pace with additional store needs, says the company. Their staff complement of some 150 employees is currently working flat out to keep pace with demand.

A new head office and distribution hub situated in Booysens, Johannesburg, takes care of the increased volume demand. This centre is fully equipped to handle all the in-house training needs to upgrade Nancefield Paint’s customers paint knowledge. The facility is able to host up to 15 employees with audio-visual material on machine colour retrieval and other training they may require. The programme also covers basic preparation methods to increase repairer efficiency.

The competition is open to any of their clients and customers who have spent an invoiced amount of R1 000 and kept their receipts of purchases at any Nancefield Paint store. The draw date will be held at a gala awards evening in late November when the prospective new owner will be announced at head office, provided that the lucky winner is in attendance for the draw on the evening to claim their new business venture prize.

Among the clients expected to attend and in Association with Nancefield Paints (Pty) Ltd is TIPA, the Informal Panel Beaters Association who operate nationally in Cape Town, Mpumalanga, Free State and Gauteng areas.
