NIBS Group appoints Coachfinish NI

Coachfinish NI has joined NIBS Group to offer specialist distribution services throughout Northern Ireland.

The family owned business has been operating for over 55 years, supplying paint, consumables and specialist support services to the bodyshop industry from their Belfast HQ.

Steve Chittim, chief executive of NIBS Group, said, ‘Coachfinish NI is a great addition to the membership. As a family owned business, their philosophy as specialist paint and consumables distributor, to give exceptional customer service is absolutely in line with NIBS Group national offer.

‘We welcome Gary and all the Coachfinish NI team on board and very much look forward to working in partnership with them, to support the Northern Ireland market.’

Gary Kidd, managing director of Coachfinish NI, 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 wider UK market, it makes perfect commercial sense to partner with NIBS for the development of our customer service and to manage distribution to all bodyshops across Northern Ireland. I know the relationship with NIBS will fortify our arm in the paint and consumables market.’

Gary’s son and daughter, Gareth and Darci, are now directors of the business which spans three generations of the same family.
