Small enough to care but big enough to matter, we are a family business with over 50 years experience in the refinish industry.
Formed in 2008 by 3 family members; Brothers Syd & John Anton along with Syd's youngest Son Phil Anton. Syd & John had both worked in the automotive refinishing industry for more than 50 years combined with Phil, the fresh faced newbie, who's enthusiasm for the challenge was unparrallelled.
We started out in a tiny 500 square foot unit with 1 small delivery van covering the immediate Bootle area in which we operated. By mid 2009 we had grown our customer base and delivery service to the point where a second van was added to our fleet along with new staff member Carol Anton (Syd's Daughter).
Over the next few years our business & customer base went from strength to strength, largely due to the relationships we had built with our existing customers who we treat like friends & family rather than just another customer. We kept up our high standards of service and strived to be as competative as we could; being a small fish in a big pond is never easy but where we may have fallen behing the larger companies we have excelled in other areas, consistently going the extra mile for our loyal customer base has proved that at times when the "big boys" can be a few pence cheaper on products there is no substitute for excellent service.
In 2012 we moved into our current premises, with the increase in custom came an increased demand for new products and we desperately needed more space in order to expand, the new premises at 2500 square feet provided the solution. With this growth and change in premises came the addition of another van to our small fleet and 2 additional members of staff (1 driver & 1 paint technician).
Early in 2016 we became a staff force of 8 and our small fleet of vans has now grown to 5 which cover the Merseyside area extensively with all areas offered a twice daily, same day delivery service with some of our busier local customers requiring upto 4 deliveries a day. Further afield we deliver Sub Distribution orders to smaller resellers / factors all of which are done next day with our trusted delivery partner UK Mail.
Our aim is to continue our growth whilst maintaining our excellent service standards, our new status allows us greater buying power which now means we are able to help smaller resellers achieve better pricing than purchasing direct from a manufacturer.
