HMG Paints expands support for ‘Made in UK’ premier coatings for the agricultural and machinery market

17 January 2024

Manchester, UK-based HMG Paints is further expanding its support for the UK agricultural and machinery market in 2024, with an expanded distributor network and product support. HMG Paints has seen a growth in opportunities since Brexit and the pandemic, evidenced by its paints and coatings appearing on many stands at the 2024 LAMMA show, including the Teagle Machinery Ltd stand.

Supply chain disruption with European products, caused by COVID, Brexit and ongoing supply issues across the globe has seen HMG partner up with a number of UK companies and supply products including primers, topcoats, DTM’s and tinted products with short lead times across the UK.

Report shows consumers feel it’s important to buy British

Companies looking inward for suppliers is highlighted in the fourth annual report into “Buying British”, with 66% of respondents saying they are starting to order more British made goods. Additionally, half of the country’s businesses (47%) and even more of the public (58%) saying they prefer to buy products that have been manufactured in the UK over alternatives imported from other countries. The 2023 ‘Buying British’ Survey was conducted by Made in Britain and OnePoll.

“We’re exceptionally proud to be a British paint manufacturer in an industry dominated by multi-national enterprises. All of our products are made right here in Manchester and this allows us to quickly service our customers paint and coatings requirements, direct or via our distribution network” commented Danny Cleary, Commercial Director of HMG Paints.
