Farrow & Ball sold to a Danish paint group Hempel for £500m
I wonder who be the happiest with that deal!!
F & B were American owned, seems odd selling out to a Danish company.
Didn’t get a lot for the sale then
Is F&B no good then?
Don’t Hempel own Crown, Sandtex etc ?
Woooooowzers. £500m ?
I'm going to guess that includes cash in bank, assets and all the mountain of Titanium Dioxide they've squirreled away.
I'd off offered £500, a roll of half used sticky tape, a few paper clips and what ever else is in my man draw.
I wonder what the US consumers will make of it. For them it was always about boasting and provenance, as in, "Farrah and Bahhl, Oh don't you know it's English paint made in England, as in England France".
Hey, if anyone from Hempel is reading this, you've bought a BRILLIANT brand but most of the products are plop.
Just heard on the radio,,, it was bought by a small independent in Hemel, as in Hemel Hempstead. Not Hempel
Yay, it will be like it was 1000 years ago when their forefathers, the Vikings, came and pillaged our hard earned money. Hopefully none of the raping this time though (it does feel a bit like you're getting bent over and rodgered though when buying their tat).
Solvite is Henkel
Yeah,,,, I know
Just getting my coat and leaving as I am a pratt
I thought it may have been something fishy, did you say you were a sprat ?
I'll take the pratt only. As Spratts are smelly and I don't smell of wee just yet
Mouldy bicuits, yes
Not starting the fish jokes again are we,hope not they were a load of codswallop
Why man, why ??
Let sleeping Dogfish lie.
Things were getting a little Bleak so I thought we could Carp on about things again
Weaver got another one going again.
Oh hell no. Leave it trout boys, eh!
I'm not taking the bait, its sole destroying.
Bloody hell boys you are on to something......Codswallop, Trout Boys, Sole Destroying can be all new F&B paint colours.
