Firm set to make a splash with paint

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

A York­shire en­tre­pre­neur who in­vented a re­mov­able paint which has fea­tured in Hol­ly­wood block­busters has found a fes­tive use for the prod­uct.

Peter Stubbs, in­ven­tor of Ac­tion Paint, said it is be­ing used on the high street to cre­ate Christ­mas win­dow dis­plays.

Ac­tion Paint is the first prod­uct from York-based Renu-TPS. It is due to go on sale in stores na­tion­wide from early next year.

Mr Stubbs has spent two years de­vel­op­ing the prod­uct with back­ing from Mer­cia Fund Man­agers.

It has been used on the set of TV se­ries, The Crown, as well as Hol­ly­wood block­busters rang­ing from wizards and su­per­heroes to epic war movies.

Mr Stubbs, a for­mer pro­ject man­ager, in­vented Ac­tion Paint while ad­vis­ing a client busi­ness which had cre­ated a germ-killing spray for care homes.

“The spray needed to in­cor­po­rate a pig­ment to show the ar­eas treated but with­out leav­ing a per­ma­nent stain,” he said.

“We couldn’t find any­thing suit­able so I started ex­per­i­ment­ing in my garage and came up with a so­lu­tion.

“It was only later that I re­alised that I had in­vented a re­mov­able paint that was a prod­uct in its own right.”
