Distribution set for tidal change

A new distribution alliance claims that the UK refinish industry is set for a shake-up with its introduction.

TIDAL – The Independent Distributor Alliance Ltd – aims to forge partnerships between bodyshops, suppliers and third parties such as insurers. It claims it will allow forward-thinking independent distributors to enhance their local business platform and open up national opportunities.

TIDAL director, Paul Blunt said, ‘My fellow directors and I are thrilled to be offering this solution to the UK’s independent distributors; we feel we can help these businesses reach the next level while adding value to the whole supply chain.

TIDAL has been formed by three long-time members of the UK’s refinish community – Daniel Belcher, Jeff Morgan and Paul Blunt. Combined they have over 100 years’ experience in the industry, and believe a network such as TIDAL is key to helping companies in the sector grow and improve whilst offering the market a real opportunity for change.
