Johnstone's Trade transform former Terry’s Chocolate factory

Johnstone's Trade transform former Terry’s Chocolate factory

Former Terry’s Chocolate factory in York is transformed into a spectacular Chocolate Works Care Village with the help of Johnstone’s Trade’s high performance products.

The renovation will provide a social meeting space through the innovative “Friends of the Chocolate Works” volunteer scheme – which encourages local residents to visit and share the facilities while improving the quality of life for the residents in an environment that promotes self-esteem.

Johnstone’s Trade’s Covaplus Vinyl Matt and Acrylic Durable Matt were used on the walls and ceilings of the interior building to provide a durable finish, making it ideal for high traffic areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, hotels, hospitals and public buildings. In addition, Johnstone’s Aqua Water Based Undercoat and Gloss were used for the trim and window frames to provide a high sheen finish and traditional gloss look that will stay whiter for longer, reducing the need for future maintenance.

Commenting on the project, Gareth Jones at Johnstone’s Trade, said: “We’re very proud to have been part of such an amazing project that will inspire and help the future of the elderly, particularly those with dementia.”
