Armstead Trade and Fix Radio to paint the northwest red during three-week roadshow

5 June 2023

  • From 12th June, Armstead Trade paints and Fix Radio, the builders’ station, will be travelling to locations across the northwest of England 
  • The Fix Radio team will be visiting locations such as Liverpool, Stockport, and Oldham to spread the word about Armstead Trade – the reliable, quality paint that gets the job done
  • As part of the wider partnership Fix Radio is also hosting an Armstead Trade competition offering one lucky listener £1,000 to spend on a weekend away with friends or family 

From 12th-30th June, Armstead Trade will be bringing its celebrated products to the masses, embarking on a UK roadshow with Fix Radio. The partnership is part of Armstead Trade’s wider ‘Gets the Job Done’ campaign, which aims to put their expansive range in front of multiskilled tradespeople, to showcase how its products can be quickly and easily applied to achieve great coverage and a reliable quality finish, whatever the job. 

Armstead Trade and Fix will be visiting trade and business park locations, spreading awareness and knowledge of the Armstead Trade product range, and encouraging tradespeople to take part in entertaining challenges. What’s more, visitors will be able to enjoy a free breakfast and goodie bags and take advantage of product vouchers to put Armstead Trade paints to the test for themselves.

“We’re so excited to be partnering with Fix Radio to champion the Armstead Trade range and show tradespeople no matter their trade how they can use our products to enrich their next project. 

“Armstead Trade recognises that in a lot of trades, paint is just a minor part of the job, but still needs to offer reliability and a pristine finish. This tour, with the amazing Fix Radio, allows us to spread the word and help our valued trade audiences across the industry to get what job they’re working on, done.”
