We’ve had a long and fruitful relationship with Eguchi Iwao and we’re pleased to announce that it’s now a shareholder in bss having purchased the stakeholding from International Applications.
Eguchi Iwao is one of the Japan’s largest supplier of paints, coatings and speciality materials and they recently opened their European officer here in the UK.
Partnering with Eguchi aligns strategically with our international growth plans and fits with our values. Similarly to us, it still holds family values at its core, regardless of size.
Paul said: “Eguchi is a well-established, reliable brand which we’re thrilled to be associated with. Llewelyn Mulder, the MD at Eguchi is fantastic and I’d like to personally thank him for the support and friendship he has given to bss.”
In 2020 Eguchi purchased the Supply 360 division from International Applications Ltd. (IAL) – one of the strongest coatings and consumable distributors in the UK. With IAL being a supplier on the UK market for 13 years, EIUK gained access to important national customers like Hitachi, Jaguar Land Rover and Toyota as well as the support of our extensive local technical service and logistics operations.
