Can you give us a bit of background on the firm?
Regal Expoline Ltd is the coming together of two companies, Regal Paints and Expoline about 18 months ago. Regal Paints has 25 years experience of manufacturing water based products and the creation of Regal Expoline enabled us to have much greater reach across the country.
We have a very strong ethos of customer service and using our long expertise in the industry to meet clients needs we often create new products on the basis of their feedback and requests. As we are a manufacturer, a developer and a supplier we can often bring quick solutions forward to our customers. The main change in the industry has been the demand for ready mix solutions, like every other part of life now, people want quick and easy solutions that work consistently.
What is the most exciting piece of work you have done as a firm recently?
We have many exciting clients but we can’t mention them due to sponsorship issues. Just to give you some flavour though, we supply into a number of football clubs which play in the Champions League. We also supply stadiums which host Gaelic Sports and even polo (the equine version). We also work with many local authorities and grounds maintenance companies who need high quality product, in high volumes at the right price.
Do you find people’s masterplans contain higher attention to detail?
This doesn’t really apply to us but customers are quite rightly expecting higher and higher standards and we aim to provide the products they want.
What’s in store for the firm in the coming years?
We are planning to grow the client base over the coming years alongside investment in our factory and laboratory. We just want to keep listening, providing solutions and using all of our expertise to keep all of our customers happy.
