National Paints all set to roll out expansion plan in UAE with scheduled opening of 14 showrooms in 2018
National Paints, a well-known paints brand in the MENA region, is all set to roll out its aggressive expansion plan in the UAE market, with the company readying to inaugurate a total of 14 new exclusive showrooms in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain in the coming weeks. The three newly built showrooms located in the capital city are the first ones that were unveiled. These will be followed shortly by the opening of 11 more outlets in the other parts of the country in the next few weeks.
All showrooms will house a premium range of National Paints’ decorative, protective, automotive, wood care, powder, P.V.C. and marine paints. The decorative range includes Trust Hygienic with silver ion technology, which prevents the growth of bacteria, mould, mildew and fungus; the 100 percent pure acrylic Shield range of exterior paints; and Expression’s wide range of decorative interior designs. Trust Hygienic is ideal for hospital and school use, while the popular Shield Extreme under the Shield range contains heat reflective pigments to lower surface temperature and save on energy consumption. The outlets are also equipped with tinting machines, an equipment capable of producing all kinds of colors instantly, to enhance the buying experience of all end consumers.
Samer Sayegh, Managing Director, National Paints, said: ‘Our expansion strategy is designed to strengthen our brand presence and capitalize on the rising growth opportunities in the local market. The 14 showrooms set to be operational this year marks the beginning of further reinforcing our market foothold as we target to build around 140-150 customer-centric showrooms across the country. Through this move, we hope to enhance our retail sales channel and improve our service levels to the end-users in line with our commitment to provide added value and quality products and services to our customers.”
National Paints has also revealed partnering with top retail customers in the market, including Bestway, Al Sajid, and Merit Paints in Abu Dhabi, with more partnerships to follow in the near future. The move aims to complement the company’s expanding presence in the UAE and strategically reach out to its target market consisting of professionals, locals, and interior designers in the premium and upper segment, among others.
