“There’s no place like home!” were the words used by Mr. Roger Roach, Managing Director of ANSA Coatings Ltd. as he delivered remarks at the opening of the company’s Penta Colour Studio on Thursday 11th June 2015 at the Colour Studio’s compound on the Eastern Main Road in Arima. Mr. Roach described Arima as being the home of Penta Paints since 1959 and said that the company was excited to be opening a new colour studio in its home town. Penta Paints has already rolled out the colour shop concept in Marabella, San Juan, Penal, Sangre Grande and El Dorado, with new stores opening soon in Point Fortin and Chaguanas. Mr. Roach gave those in attendance the affirmation that no other local or foreign brand could deliver the colour shop experience that Penta does.
ANSA Coatings’ Sales and Marketing Manager, Mr. Sean De Souza expressed his concern on the use of foreign manufactured paints for government projects across Trinidad and Tobago. Mr. De Souza spoke about the change in government policy that had been noticed in recent years with a US manufacturer being selected over local brands, such as Penta Paints, for major projects such as the Children’s Hospital in Couva and the Housing Development Corporation’s housing developments. Mr. De Souza made the appeal for local manufacturers, such as ANSA Coatings, to be given priority in their home market.
Dr the Honourable Rodger Samuel, Member of Parliament for Arima and Minister of National Diversity and Social Integration delivered guest remarks at the launch. Also speaking at the opening was His Worship Alderman George Hadeed, Mayor of Arima.
The new franchise owner, Mr. Wendell Campbell expressed his gratitude for the opportunity that ANSA Coatings has given him to own his own business, and the company reiterated their support for Mr. Campbell who was described by Mr. Roger Roach as embodying all the key characteristics that would make him a success in the coatings industry.
The new Penta Colour Studio, which is located at #33 John Shaw Avenue, Eastern Main Road, Arima, will also offer its customers Glidden and Devoe decorative paint brands, along with Rust-Oleum, Zinzeer and Merit Pro specialty coatings and accessories. In addition to a wide catalogue of Metpro windows and doors, Katashi and Carrier air condition units, Abel and Bestcrete clay and concrete blocks, pavers and specialty products.
