AkzoNobel and QEP-Vitrex have become the latest companies to sign up for the Rainy Day Trust’s Partnership scheme.
AkzoNobel is the largest global paints and coatings company, its UK portfolio including well-known brands such as Dulux, Cuprinol, Polycell and Hammerite.
QEP-Vitrex is the world’s leading supplier of tiling and flooring installation tools.
Annual membership of the RDT Partner scheme costs £1,000, and delivers a package of publicity benefits, as well as helping the home improvement industry’s charity.
Through annual pensions and one-off grants, it assists people who have spent a significant part of their working lives in the industry and who now find they need a helping hand.
“When we heard about the Partnership scheme, signing up just felt the right thing to do,” said Paul Boyce, chief executive of the UK operation. “The home improvement market has enabled us to strengthen and grow, and we’re very happy that by becoming a Partner we’re giving something back. We will certainly be encouraging other companies to do likewise.”
