Powder Coating Paints | Pym and Wildsmith Case Study

Krizevac is a UK charity company working to provide sustainable lasting benefits to communities in Malawi and other parts of Africa. The charity approached Pym and Wildsmith to see if we would be interested in supporting their charity work and being a local company we were only too happy to help.

They asked if we would be able to refurbish and powder coat old Royal Mail bicycles. These bikes, which Krizevac are calling ‘Elephant Bikes’ are then sold in the UK to help fund deprived communities in Africa. The great thing about the scheme is that the price of each refurbished bike includes the cost of sending a similar bike to Malawi. Our anti-corrosion powder coating is the perfect coating for these bikes, giving them a complete protective finish and a new lease of life. 

Since April 2015 we have been supporting this work powder coating paints and processing over 1500 bike frames together with the other parts of the bicycles which need a powder coat. Our aim is to provide each frame with a high-quality finish of powder coating paints with exceptional turnaround time. A key benefit to the charity is that we are also able to coat different coloured bike frames in a short period of time.

When Krizevac moved to a new premises, a potential problem in terms of additional transportation costs arose. Pym and Wildsmith have responded to Krizevac’s request for help in this area and in light of the growing relationship and the value of the work they do we have agreed to subsidise this element of the work at our own cost. Pym and Wildsmith are proud to be working with Krizevac on the Elephant Bike project and we are also pleased that our contribution has recently been recognised by their UK Manager George. They stated in a letter to us that the continuing success of the Elephant Bike project was based mainly on the quality of our workmanship. As a company, we value their feedback and it is great to know we are contributing in some small way to help improve people’s lives.
