Coronavirus – Important Update

UPDATE 6th April

First off, we hope everyone in any way connected with Pronto Paints is safe and well. We applaud the efforts of the NHS, all designated key workers and the UK government for continuing to work in our best interests at this time.

From a coatings perspective, Pronto Paints remains open for business and can support businesses across the country who need coatings for their work, or to implement social distancing layouts on factory floors and outside areas. We’re seeing rising interest in our floor and linemarking products particularly as the weather starts to turn.

We are prioritising our efforts to manufacture the World Health Organisation formula for Handrub. When approved by HSE, we will be making a small batch to support our local hospitals, but also selling an amount to existing customers who are struggling to get supplies.

Our factory remains restricted with sales and marketing teams continuing to work from home. We’re encouraged that our supply chain remains in good shape and we would again like to thank everyone who works with Pronto for their ongoing support in hugely challenging times, and to reassure our customers that we will be able to meet your needs if you are operational.



UPDATE 20th March

We hope everyone is doing well in these uncertain times. We wish to let you know Pronto Paints are fully open and taking precautions as advised by UK Government to ensure we can remain open during this unprecedented crisis. Some of our team are working from home now to minimise the numbers on site and we have restricted access to the factory so all meetings will be virtual until further notice.

Our supply chain remains in good shape, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who works with Pronto and reassure our customers that it is business as usual.


UPDATE 15th March

We have used our warehousing space in recent weeks to secure additional supplies of key raw materials, so all products remain available with our usual short lead times.

Our supply chain is very complex, with over 400 raw materials used in our formulations. Wherever possible we have multiple options for purchase and work closely with our suppliers to ensure continued access to these raw materials.

If you have specific questions you would like answering, please get in touch with your Account Manager or email and we will get back to you shortly.

Assuring you of our best attention at all times
