PPG are pleased to announce that Chorlton Trade Paints have joined the PPG family, increasing the company’s store network in Greater Manchester to 10. For 15 years Chorlton Trade Paints have catered for painters and decorators in the surrounding area, as well as nationally through their online business.


Chorlton Trade Paints’ existing team will remain in the store, continuing to offer the same excellent customer service. The purchase will also mean customers have access to greater product selection and receive unparalleled technical support from the PPG Extra technical team and Colour Advisory services. Customers will also be able to take advantage of online account management and ordering facilities.


Vincent O’Sullivan, Business Unit Director of PPG UK and Ireland, welcomed the acquisition and said: “We’re delighted that Chorlton Trade Paints has joined the PPG family, helping us grow our presence in Manchester, and to welcome our new colleagues from the store. Their knowledge and experience will be invaluable in delivering excellent service to both new and existing customers.”


Commenting on the acquisition, Alan Hulbert, former proprietor said: “PPG is a highly trusted and respected name in the industry. We’ve worked with the business, and stocked Johnstone’s products, for many years, so are delighted to be leaving Chorlton Trade Paints in such good hands. Not only will our wonderful team remain in the store, joining the PPG family will bring even more benefits to our customers.”
