The manufacturing facility in Ashington will become the heart of AkzoNobel’s UK decorative paints operations, and will treble the North-East manufacturing capability of the UK’s decorative paints business. The move to Ashington reinforces the paint producer’s commitment to ensuring that some of its most recognizable brands continue to be manufactured in the UK, with a particular focus on the north-east. It follows a series of significant investments in the company’s fire protection facility, and research facilities at its Felling, Tyne and Wear site.

The new site is due to commence operations in late 2014. At the end of 2014, AkzoNobel plans to close its current site in nearby Prudhoe and its manufacturing operations in Slough. Slough will remain the headquarters for the UK Decorative Paints business for marketing and global research and development.
