Manchester based HMG Paints Ltd has renewed its technical partnership with Prodrive, a world leading motorsport and technology business, and will continue to supply innovative paints and coatings for the Aston Martin Racing and MINI World Rally teams.
HMG Paints, the UK’s largest independent coatings manufacturer, has utilised its extensive lab facilities, high-spec development equipment and team of experienced colour specialists to produce a plethora of bespoke, high performance motorsport coatings.
Prodrive’s Chairman, David Richards, has been impressed with HMG’s service, saying: “Having such an experienced technical partner in HMG has allowed us to develop paints in a variety of unusual colours and finishes. We simply tell them what we are looking for and they have a technical expert who can come up with the solution we need.”
HMG Paints and Prodrive have worked on joint projects on and off the track , seeing HMG supply a system of paints to protect and coat the factory facilities at Prodrive’s brand new headquarters in Banbury, UK.
The partnership has continued in winning fashion with Aston Martin Racing cruising to victory at the FIA Endurance World Championship (WEC) Six Hours of Silverstone in April and the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) Six Hours of Spa race in May.
The partnership aims to enhance the competitive edge of both racing teams by developing a range of performance boosting products. Plans are already in place to develop a weight reduction program that will minimise excess coatings usage alongside a heat management coating for interior and exterior use.
HMG’s Special Projects Director, John Fenton, has been thrilled with the progress of the partnership: “After an incredible first two years, we are really excited for the future of our relationship with Prodrive. The partnership has created a stir across HMG, and we relish the chance to continue developing new coatings for such an elite racing team”.
