Become a stockist
For 40 years our family run manufacturing business has been supplying the timber trade with high quality water-based wood stains, decorative timber treatments and preservatives. As we make everything
in our factory in Somerset, we can react very quickly to large orders, colour trends, specific RAL paint requests and any other requests! The longest wait would be a maximum of 5 working days.
This sets us apart from the competition, many of whom manufacturer overseas and have to ship. All our paints are water based, low odour and low VOC making them child, pet, plant, bird and bee friendly.
Do I need to hold stock to be a stockist?
NO! We have a couple of different stockist models. If you don’t have space to hold our products we operate a drop ship model or ‘Flexi Stockist’. This means that you place an order for your customer and we send direct to them. You still get the sale without taking any of your space. If you chose to hold stock, see section below.
How much do I need to stock? Is there a minimum number of lines?
We can work out your order for you – all you need to do is tell us how much space you have. We can create suggested product packs for you based on your space and our extensive knowledge of what ranges and colours sell best. For customers stocking the full range we can supply a Custom-Made Free-Standing Display unit.
What tools would I have to help sell Protek?
To help sell Protek we offer a full POS package including display backing boards, pull-up banners, colour charts and brochures. Our shelf end strips are hand painted for true representation of the colour range.
We always send out our trained sales team to help with product knowledge and training.
"Darren gave 2 training sessions on Protek at our annual training sessions. This was an excellent opportunity to support our managers with the upsell of the product on our garden buildings. Informative and very friendly, no question was too much"
"Thoroughly enjoyed the training especially being able to open the tins, see the product and have a go at painting it to see how it looks. You can see that Darren is passionate about the products which he promotes, so in turn the training is much more interesting and engaging.”
