Vivalda Group, a UK supplier of building materials, has launched Prism Powder Coating, a standalone powder coating business based in Scotland.

This follows Vivalda’s acquisition of MSP Scotland in 2019, previously Strathclyde Powder Coatings.

‘While our powder coating operation has been around for more than 25 years, it’s only now that it’s had the investment and attention it really deserves,’ said Kenny Carmichael, branch manager at Prism Powder Coating. ‘Over the last few years, we’ve seen more architects and contractors coming to us for bespoke, specialist PPC solutions and realised now – despite Covid – was the right time to set up Prism Powder Coating in its own right.’

 The company reportedly provides a large range of colours and finishes and a chrome-free, eight stage pre-treatment process, which has Qualicoat accreditation and approved applicator status from Akzo Nobel.
