Trident Powders celebrate its 5th birthday as the innovative powder manufacturer
BFM Associate member, Trident Powders Limited, welcomed 2021 by celebrating its 5th Birthday.
Trident Powders is confident to claim than in just five short years it has established itself as ‘the UK’s most innovative powder manufacturer to enter the market in the last 30 years.
Founded in 2016, with a goal of modernizing powder manufacture and supply in the UK, the vision was to be more than just a standard powder manufacturer, becoming a partner to coaters, manufactures, architects, and design houses alike, excelling in working with customers to deliver bespoke powder solutions to meet exact requirements in unbeatable lead times, without compromising on quality.
In 2020, Despite the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, Trident Powders responded to customer needs and the changes put upon the industry, by launching an e-commerce site providing a simple and easy way for customers to order powder directly online.
They also invested in their anti-microbial/anti-bacterial range which helps reduce the spread of germs on a surface, supplying bespoke powder for M&S to coat their hand sanitiser stations nationwide and working with partner coaters to prepare for the nightingale hospital in London.
Today, Trident Powders has a reputation not only for the quality of their products but also the flexibility in their approach as a powder partner. Offering a mix and match solution including:
- Bespoke colours created to match customer needs
- Custom built functional elements and finish
- Flexible order quantities to reduce waste
Navi Badyal, CEO said
“We are immensely proud of our team here at Trident Powders and what we have achieved together, and with our partners, particularly in 2020! At the heart of our culture is the customer, we are all passionate about delivering quality solutions that exceed our customers’ needs. Our chemists are constantly striving for quality across our product range, our manufacturing and production teams are driven to deliver the best lead-times in the industry and our account management and aftersales teams thrive on interacting with and delighting our customers.
It wasn’t easy during the pandemic and the initial lockdown of last year, and like every business our main objective was to protect our people, both their welfare and their income by keeping the business open and continuing to support our customers.
One of the most obvious things for us to do was to offer on-line ordering for our customers in particular for stock colours that they may be running low on. In the coatings industry the ability to order online is not something that is widely available, in fact I believe we were the first manufactures to offer the ability to order powder on-line. Of course, we will always have our sales and account management teams available to help and support our customers, in particular when it comes to bespoke solutions which we are best known for, but it’s been great to be able to offer our customers that ability to just re-order on-line as and when they need to.
We are excited about 2021 and what the future holds for Trident Powders, as we continue to develop our product range whilst supporting and delivering for our customers.”
