Johnstone's helps to transform Sandwell Homes
Johnstone’s Aqua Gloss and Vinyl Matt paint products
Paint products from Johnstone’s have helped in the transformation of 23,000 homes for Sandwell Homes Partnership.
The transformation is part of Sandwell Homes’ commitment to meet the Decent Homes Standard.
Sandwell Homes is an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO) which provides housing management, repairs and maintenance to council-owned properties throughout the Sandwell area of the West Midlands.
Johnstone’s products were chosen to help put the finishing touches to the properties.
Bathrooms and kitchens in the properties were redecorated using Johnstone’s Aqua Gloss and Vinyl Matt paint products.
Aqua Gloss offers low odour qualities, which meant minimal disruption was caused for tenants.
Vinyl Matt has quick drying properties, enabling decorating work to be completed quickly and efficiently.
In addition to using Johnstone’s paint products, tenants were also given the option of using Johnstone’s Decorating Centres’ extensive range of wallcoverings from the Easytex range and the Contractors’ Choice book.
Johnstone’s Vinyl Matt has been awarded the EU Ecolabel, which means its environmental credentials have been independently tested and verified.
Simon Parry, Head of Partnership Management at Sandwell Homes, said: “The high standard of both service and product provided through Johnstone’s has contributed to the Partnership achieving high customer satisfaction throughout the delivery of the Sandwell Decent Homes Programme.”
Cummings & Pattison (North East) has applied over 250L of Johnstone’s Professional Gloss at the new Sustainable Enterprise Strategies (SES) Co-op Centre in Sunderland. The new centre has been constructed using adapted shipping containers. Suitable for metal finishes, Johnstone’s Professional Gloss provides a durable, high gloss finish to the exterior of the containers.
PPG Architectural Coatings, manufacturer of leading paint brands Johnstone’s and Leyland, is looking for UK Charities to become their next Charity partner. PPG extensive offer national exposure, including through its 187 Johnstone’s Decorating Centres. The charity must cover the UK and Ireland and be registered in one of these countries. PPG employees will vote to choose the company’s charity partner.
Johnstone’s has given the club shop at Crewe Alexandra Football Club a fresh new look using its Acrylic Durable Matt emulsion in Railwaymen Red – a colour that feature’s on the company’s Team Colours colour card. Acrylic Durable Matt was specified for its ability to provide a tough, durable finish that is resistant to yellowing and condensation. Johnstone’s has sponsored the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy since 2006.

During July and August 2013, Johnstone’s gave decorators the chance to test the application qualities of its Aqua Gloss water-based paint as part of the Aqua Challenge roadshow. Johnstone’s Aqua Gloss overcomes the impacts of legislative changes regarding solvent-based products but still boasts similar application qualities. It has been designed to offer shorter drying times, low odour and reduced yellowing.
A range of paints and finishes from Johnstone’s have been specified for the new, 13,000 capacity Leeds Arena. Johnstone’s washable Acrylic Eggshell and durable Covaplus have been used on plastered walls and stair soffits while the company’s Stormshield Smooth Masonry paint has been used to protect the exposed internal blockwork. Johnstone’s Flortred was applied to the concrete floors to ensure staff and visitor safety.
