Fassa Bortolo, a manufacturer of building materials and integrated render systems, has supplied its distributors with new machinery.
The manufacturer has gifted colour matching tint machines to a number of key distribution centres, with the latest being installed at NDI in Newton-Le-Willows, Doncaster’s RENDIT and Essex-based CRT International.
These state-of-the-art machines are able to match Fassa products to specific colour needs quickly and efficiently, allowing distributors the opportunity to answer the growing needs of customers. Both the Fassatherm and Fassarend systems are already available in 365 colours as standard, but through tinting technology, distributors are able to match renders to existing RAL shades and other system colours in store.
With each machine coming in at over 20,000 EUR, this free service has been offered with full training, so staff can operate the machine and mix the renders in branch. The Fassa render is added to the machine with ink gradually added to the Fassa branded containers during the mixing process to create bespoke shades.
The tinting machines are in place at selected distribution centres for three years, and are already set up for use in Woodman Supplies, Bristol and Superior Render Supplies in Cornwall.
Dale Telling, Commercial Manager at Fassa Bortolo UK said: “Investing in our customers is natural for us as a business. We need to support those who support us and there is an incentive for both sides. These machines help fulfil customer needs like never before, demonstrating that both Fassa and our distribution partners are committed to offering the best service.”
Brian Adamson, Branch Manager at NDI Newton-Le-Willows comments: “Having the Fassa tinting machine will greatly enhance our render product portfolio and help us provide a fast and efficient turnaround in what is becoming a highly competitive market.”
