Protek packs a colour punch


Protek know a thing or two about paint. They have been making water-based paints from their factory in Somerset for forty years. The family business was set up in 1983 by Eric and Janet Thornborough who had a vision to sell quality water-based wood paints, decorative timber treatments and wood preservatives.


Today the business is run by their daughters – Becky and Harriet who were brought up with paint! The environment is still at the heart of Protek. All the paints are water-based contain low VOC (Volatile organic compounds), low odour, low toxicity and free from Formaldehyde. All the products are non-flammable and safe to use on exterior cladding on buildings.


As the paints are water based, they are child, pet, plant, bird, and bee friendly allowing you to paint with confidence. Cleaning up is hassle free too as all the brushes can be washed in warm water and the tins are easy to dispose of as they are made from recycled materials and can be recycled.


There are 6 ranges to choose from including Royal Exterior, Wood Stain and Protect, Shed and Fence, Timber Eco Shield, Stable Coat and Decking Stain. With over 100 colours to choose from, across the ranges, there is something to suit all colour palates, tastes, trends, and budgets. From classic wood colours, modern greys and blacks, tonal greens, or bright rainbow colours for children the paint ranges offer great choice and excellent coverage.


Protek can support retail outlets to maximise sales. Using sales histories from similar sized businesses, current trends, and future predictions the Protek sales team will create a unique display plan that makes the most of the space available. Bespoke displays can be provided along with Point of sale and colour swatches making it hassle free and easier to sell to customers.


Space and stock holding can often be a problem, but Protek are able to offer various stock options that can be tailored to your business including a drop ship model.


Protek offers staff training to upskill sales teams ensuring that they are aware of all the product details, benefits, colours, and prices. This training has proved to be invaluable giving confidence to sales staff.
