New factory protection

World renowned British Motorsport and Advanced Technology business Prodrive is entering the last stages of its facility move across the road, to a new factory opposite their headquarters of 30 years in Banbury, UK.

After being handed the keys to the new site in April of 2015, Prodrive called upon technical partners HMG Paints to produce a system of paints to coat and protect the 110,000 sq ft headquarters. “During 2015, Prodrive moved its operation after nearly three decades in the same location within Banbury, which over those times built and operated some of the highest level competition cars in the world.  One of our partners during that period was HMG who supplied paint products for all our competition car builds,” said Paul Howarth – Prodrive’s Director of Motorsport Operations. 

The versatile Decorative Range offered by HMG Paints includes emulsions, masonry paints, road line paints and water resistant coatings that are easy to apply and durable but also retain their colour. The range of products has been specified for use on a number of new build, redecoration and historical renovation projects. 

“Prodrive are known for their advanced technologies and we are proud to be introducing our new decorative range with our own advanced technologies in to such an impressive modern purpose built facility. We enjoyed working closely with Prodrive throughout the project, from specifying the correct products for each area of the facility, to selecting the ideal colours,” said John Fenton – HMG Paints’ Special Projects Director.
