Hella appoints Paul Tredgold for new paint division

The recent addition of Hella’s Sonne refinishing programme demonstrates the company’s development and expansion of its product range.

To head up this new paint division, Sonne, HELLA has recruited Paul Tredgold, a refinishing specialist who has been involved in the paint industry for the majority of his career and someone who has made a significant contribution to the companies in which he has been involved.

Helen Goldingay, senior head of marketing and communications says: “We are very delighted to have Paul on board to spearhead this exciting new division and have no doubt that it will grow to become a core division within the business, particularly bearing in mind Paul’s vast knowledge and market expertise.”

Reflecting on his appointment, Paul says: “To join the business, with the responsibility to build and grow a new division, is naturally a challenge, but it is a ‘once in a career’ type of opportunity that I simply couldn’t resist.

“HELLA is such a highly regarded organisation within the industry and crucially, has the capability and infrastructure to successfully introduce such a specialism as refinishing products. I am therefore looking forward to securing the undoubted business opportunities available within the market and adding value to distribution and bodyshops throughout the UK."
