Kent Blaxill has acquired Norwich-based company, Paint & Paper Ltd.
James Park, managing director of Kent Blaxill, said: “We are delighted to have completed this acquisition for our growing decorating, glass and building centre group. Paint & Paper Ltd was established in 1995 and specialised in designer wallpaper and paint, and the first stockist of Farrow & Ball. The company has many KB core values, and owner Steve Dix was actively involved with the founders of leading designer paint name, Farrow & Ball – and the range still features Dix Blue.”
Park added: “The history, reputation and ethos of the company will be in safe hands within KB. It is our intention to keep what we see as an important brand name within the industry. It signals a new era for Paint & Paper Ltd and it will continue to trade under this name with all its current staff retained.”
“One of the interesting and positive outcomes of the recent ‘lockdown’ period saw our homes becoming even more important and we see continued growth across home improvements. Homeowners are developing hybrid workspaces as a result of working from home and it seems a beautiful home is even more important to many of us and we have exciting plans to develop the online trading site, https://www.paint-paper.co.uk/ further over the next 12 months.”
