Crown Paints has recently been acquired by world-leading coatings supplier, Hempel.

The transaction sees UK private equity house, Endless LLP, successfully exit Crown Paints after acquiring the business in September 2008.  The terms and value of the transaction are undisclosed.
Hempel, which was established in Denmark nearly a century ago, is now a global business and supplies products to the decorative, protective, marine, container and yacht markets in more than 80 countries. The company recorded profits of €92 million on revenues of €889 million in 2010.
Hempel has acquired Crown Paints as one of the market leading businesses in the decorative coatings sector in the UK and Eire. In line with its growth strategy, Hempel now plans to draw on Crown Paints’ expertise in order to strengthen its decorative presence.
Endless and the management team at Crown Paints achieved a successful turnaround of the previously loss-making business in 2008 and went on to achieve profits of £20 million on sales of £180 million in 2010, whilst also increasing its market share for the last three years. Under Hempel’s ownership, they will continue to develop the business in the UK and Eire, retaining all of their brands and entire product range as well as continuing their commitment to best in class sustainability measures.
