Cambridgeshire based timber window and door hardware specialist, Mighton Products, has extended its partnership with Anker Stuy Verven BV to include a larger range of the Dutch paint and coatings manufacturer’s products. Mighton will now add the full range of specialist timber treatments, including interior finishes, to its established range of paints and coatings that are finding increasing favour with joinery manufacturers. Plans also include the addition of paints and coatings for other, non-timber, applications.
Mighton has been distributing Anker Stuy products to its specialist joinery customers with next day delivery and a simple pricing structure which, with the development of products specifically developed for the UK, has drawn excellent response from customers resulting in significant sales growth. Mighton Chairman Mike Derham has now committed the company to develop additional markets such as for timber architectural façades, for which Anker Stuy products have been specified with great success. These include protection of the extensive timber façade of Cheshire’s Lymm Fire Station, which has won praise for its avant-garde design and execution.
“We have very quickly developed an excellent working rapport with Anker Stuy which has enabled us to develop our coatings division with confidence,” said Mike Derham. “This has led to us extending the relationship earlier and further than we had anticipated. The company has an excellent research and development facility that is both technically brilliant and highly responsive to the specific needs of our UK customers.”
For Anker Stuy, Emile Stuy said that the partnership has matured very quickly and added: “Mighton has shown a very real understanding of the needs of its customers in terms of coatings and paints. The company is working with our technical departments to develop new and innovative products for the UK that extend high performance whilst also offering ease of application. We will introduce a number of new products with Mighton in coming months.”
