A HISTORY OF TECHNICAL LEADERSHIP
Great Beginnings. In 1994, a highly experienced group of industry-leading chemists formed Cambridgeshire Coatings Ltd. (CCL) with the goal of creating a premier refinishing system. CCL began partnering with the world's foremost pigment and resin manufacturers to create a new refinishing technology that would deliver European quality and color match at a significant savings over the big brands.
CCL chemists spent years perfecting the Pro-Spray line, developing products that met the industry's highest performance expectations. Most important was the technology behind color creation. Using robotic application and in-depth computer analysis to evaluate color palettes, CCL created a superior color system and database that raised the bar in color matching worldwide.
Outrageous Custom Finishes. A new premium brand was soon to follow. In 2001 CCL launched Rage Custom Finishes (now called Outrageous Custom Finishes). Painters around the world have chosen Outrageous Custom Finishes to express their individuality and showcase their prized projects.
An American Company with European Roots. As distribution matured, Pro-Spray products were exported to the United States where they quickly grew in popularity. In 2003, CCL and the Pro-Spray product family were acquired by Alco Industries, an employee-owned corporation consisting of eight diversified manufacturing companies located in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Responsible Refinishing. Drawing on its own strength in scientific innovation, the company continued to invest in Pro-Spray technology, finding new ways to help body shops perform at a higher level for less money. Further studies and scientific advances led to the creation and launch of Pro-Spray® H2O Waterborne Basecoat System – future-minded and performance driven basecoats saturated in color. Pro-Spray H2O combines art and technology to form a responsible finishing product that harnesses the power of water. Pro-Spray H2O basecoats have high pigment concentrations, so less is more. H2O also has minimal VOCs – helping body shops go "green" for the environment.
A New Name. CCL was renamed Pro-Spray Automotive Finishes LTD in 2006 to better reflect the company's product lines and value proposition.
2008 – A Year of Milestones. 2008 welcomed big changes for Pro-Spray. A new Pro-Spray Technical and Training Center was opened in Massillon, Ohio. Featuring nearly 5,000 sq. ft., a fully-equipped spray booth, classroom, wash bay and prep station, the center offers auto body professionals complete hands-on and classroom training for Pro-Spray products.
Pro-Spray also opened a new manufacturing facility in Biggleswade, England, in 2008 to help meet growing customer demand. The new facility boasts over 53,000 square feet of office, manufacturing and distribution capabilities.
Committed to the Future. Today Pro-Spray has state-of-the-art corporate and manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and UK with distribution throughout the European Union and North America, and it continues to base its solid reputation on high-quality products at an incredible price.
