Paint maker in distribution deal with Norbert

Paint manufacturer Valspar has appointed Norbert Dentressangle to provide warehousing and distribution to support its expansion in the UK market, in partnership with a DIY retailer.

The deal means the retailer will stock a full selection of Valspar paints.

Dentressangle will be responsible for the warehousing and picking of orders and delivery into the retailer’s regional distribution network, where orders are cross-docked and consolidated with other products for final delivery to store. When completed, the operation will be serving more than 350 stores.

US group Valspar has sales of more than $4bn. Global managing director Mike Watson said: “We are delighted to be working with Norbert Dentressangle as we enter the UK market. Norbert Dentressangle has a strong people culture and global capabilities which made them the ideal partner for our business.”
