If you’re a Canadian pro-painter or contractor looking to brush up your painting skills and grow your business, Dulux Paints has an opportunity for you. Earlier this year, Dulux launched an online painters marketplace, promoting professional painters and contractors from coast to coast who have been trained in applying new, leading-edge Dulux Effect Finishes paint.
“Our goal is to support and promote Canada’s top professional painters and contractors, while enabling them to differentiate themselves in a competitive market with a unique skill set and tools affiliated with a leading paint brand,” said Martin Tustin-Fuchs, brand manager for the Dulux paints brand of PPG.
“You don’t need to be an artist to create a master-piece with Dulux Effect Finishes, but with the proper training, you can take the results of a paint job to the next level, delivering striking walls that completely transform a decor, even if nothing else in the room is changed.”
Dulux is offering training workshops for professional painters and contractors country-wide. Offered for $300, the full-day, hands-on course includes a supply of Dulux Effect Finishes products, applicators, sample board and colour tools – with a value well beyond the cost of the course, Tustin-Fuchs explained.
“It’s a win-win opportunity for the paint trade,” he said. “Our message to pro-painters is that Dulux Paints will teach you new skills and techniques under professional guidance, and promote your skills and services through our new online marketplace to help you attract and better serve clients.”
Accessed at findapainter.dulux.ca, the national marketplace features a growing list of pro-painters and contractors divided according to region. “Each month, additional pro-painters will be added as they become trained as masters in Dulux Effect Finishes,” Tustin-Fuchs said.
