Vertik-Al celebrates 25 years as Qualicoat approved coating applicator


Vertik-Al, a UK-based independent powder coater, is celebrating 25 years as a Qualicoat approved coating applicator after passing its latest third-party inspection.

The Birmingham-based business was awarded the quality label in January proving conformity with Qualicoat 2024 specifications. It is also approved to offer Qualicoat Seaside class powder coating, suitable for exposed sites.

A statement said that Vertik-Al was the first Qualicoat UK and Ireland licensed applicator in 1999. The company has helped set the standard for other coating applicators and has raised awareness of the quality label amongst specifiers operating in a wide range of industries, it noted.

The Qualicoat specification is regularly updated following evidence-based research and generally exceeds the BS EN 12206 specification for powder coating. Therefore, specifiers and clients are assured of powder coating best practice when they opt to work with an approved applicator, it cited.

John Park-Davies, group managing director at Vertik-Al, said: “This is a tremendous achievement for Vertik-Al and is testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team and our unerring commitment to quality, over many years.

“In a challenging market such as now, this differentiates us from competing businesses.  It assures our existing customers that they are receiving the very best possible product and service and proves to new potential customers that we are a trusted and consistent supplier.”

Chris Mansfield, vice chair of Qualicoat UK and Ireland, added: “We wish to congratulate Vertik-Al on reaching this incredible milestone. Their contribution over the past 25 years has been integral to the development of the Qualicoat quality label in the UK & Ireland.

“As an organisation we are committed to standardising and improving the quality of powder coating for architectural aluminium and its alloys. With the support of member companies like Vertik-Al we can ensure consistent and unwavering high standards along the supply chain resulting in high-performance, durable finishes which can be enjoyed for many years.”

Vertik-Al holds the GSB International Master Seal for Approved Coater Aluminium.  The company is also a member of Aluminium Federation (ALFED) and Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB).
