Crown Paints has handed over its 1000th litre of paint to the city of Hull, as it honours its standing as the UK City of Culture 2017.
To commemorate the occasion, Crown has created a uniquely branded container, with over 150 tins produced.
Representatives on behalf of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 made a visit to Crown’s manufacturing centre in Sculcoates Lane, Hull, to take a look at the special paint.

Throughout the year, Crown have taken a massive role in renovating the city, offering support for a variety of programmes and good causes, which have certainly put the region firmly on the map.
Amongst the visually arresting projects that Crown Paints have been involved in are the enormous murals in the historic old fishing area of Hessle Road. Read more here: http://www.buildingtalk.com/crown-paints-ideal-for-hull-as-city-of-culture/

Paint has been given to the Humber Street Gallery, in which Crown provided a aesthetically superb backdrop for the exhibition space and the World’s Favourite Colour initiative, in which a rich shade of teal – Marrs Green – was chosen by a global audience (Both with more information at: http://www.buildingtalk.com/crown-paints-ideal-for-hull-as-city-of-culture/) are other examples of Crown’s great work these past 12 months.
Crown were also generous enough to offer paint and colour matching knowhow to ensure a bespoke backdrop for this year’s shortlisted Turner Prize artists (http://www.buildingtalk.com/turner-prize-curators-and-crown-paints-team-up-for-hull/)
Site Manager at Crown Paints Hull manufacturing centre, Ellis Mudd, commented: “Crown has been manufacturing paints in the city for more than 200 years and the last 12 months have certainly been a landmark time in our history and that of the city overall.
“We are really proud to support Hull UK City of Culture. It has provided a national and international platform to showcase our colour expertise and celebrate the transformational power of culture.
“The impact of the programme overall has been remarkable and we are delighted to have played our part so far.”
Louise Babych, Hull UK City of Culture Development Manager spoke about her delight of having Crown Paints as a business partner.
“They have quite literally added a splash of colour to our fantastic programme of events, activities and exhibitions,” she said.
“Their donation of paint to the Hull 2017 programme has allowed us to transform spaces and really showcase their colour matching expertise.”
