Jotun launches 1,050th Multicolor Centre
Dubai, July 7, 2009
Jotun Paints, a leading producer and suppliers of paints and coatings, recently launched its 1,050th Multicolor Centre in the Middle East, as part of its ambitious plan to establish over 1,500 Multicolor Centres in the region by 2011.
Located in Al Barsha, the newly launched Multicolor Centre is the 96th in the UAE and is called the ‘Atlantis Inspiration Centre’, a store concept that targets a niche market of quality-conscious families and consumer-oriented interior designers.
“We have launched 1,050 Multicolor Centres in the region and this is a testament to the growing success of this concept,” said Eirik Kristensen, regional marketing manager – Mena, Jotun Paints.
“With more people now involved towards the decorative process of their homes themselves, demand for both interior and exterior paints from end consumers will increase, and this is an opportunity that we want to leverage,” he added.
“The correction in the prices within the real estate sector is an indication of a healthier market in the near future, and we are expecting to further drive the ‘Do-It-Yourself’ (DIY) concept in terms of home decoration among local and regional customers.”
In addition to an extensive display of colour options, the new Multicolor Centre will also provide assistance and advice to customers with the help of a team of paint experts who have extensive knowledge of Jotun paint products and interior designing.
Keeping in mind the specifications laid down by the customer, the team elevates customer satisfaction by letting the customers have a first hand experience in using different paint techniques, textures and colours for exterior and interior paints.
'Our goal is to help end-users create a unique ambience through our range of vibrant and user friendly paints, which we have formulated to address their specific requirements. The contribution of Multicolor Centres in our regional expansion efforts has been significant, and we are optimistic that this will play a major role in our overall growth strategy,” concluded Kristensen.
Among the key features that has been driving the success of the Multicolor Centre as a concept in the region includes the ‘Colour Bar’, which offers clients with a total of 950 colour samples; and the ‘ColourAdvisor’, wherein customers can choose from a colour palette on display and see how the colours’ will look in different environments, furniture settings and under different lighting conditions. – TradeArabia News Service
