ACIS joins forces with Coachfinish NI

ACIS, a leading distributor to the automotive refinishing industry, has joined forces with Coachfinish NI to enhance its distribution offering to Northern Ireland.

Located in Belfast, Coachfinish NI is a professional distributor of refinish materials and coatings, having been around for over 55 years.

Managing director Gary Kidd, said, ‘The market continues to change and evolve, which means there is continual need to adapt and form strategic alliances.

‘As a leading distribution organisation to the market in the wider UK, it makes perfect commercial sense to partner with ACIS for the enhancement of our customer service and to manage the distribution of paint and materials to bodyshops across Northern Ireland.’

Graham O’Neill, the chief executive of ACIS, said ‘There were a lot of synergies with coming together with Coachfinish NI at a time of great change in the refinishing market where consolidation and partnership are increasingly the industry norm.

‘As a solid and future-proofed family business spanning three generations, having Coachfinish NI as a shareholder member offers the network greater reach and flexibility.  We are looking forward to working very closely together on servicing the bodyshops in Northern Ireland.’
