With more than 1,500 colours available, the owners of a new company based on Springvale Industrial Estate in Cwmbran, are now open and ready to engage with private car owners and commercial clients alike, to offer a comprehensive range of vehicle wrapping services.

Operating from a 1,500 sq ft unit, Paul Swinburne and his business partner Adrian Radford, have formed Phoenix Wraps and invested in the state-of-the-art software and printers that enable them to work with customers to provide unique designs and finishes for their vehicles.

With more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, Paul is a certified vehicle graphics installer who, prior to starting Phoenix Wraps, worked for national and local companies both here in South Wales and in his hometown of Newcastle.

Adrian, a keen collector of classic cars and the owner of Cardiff based QuickSmart IT, met Paul while having his own Lotus Eclat wrapped by him.

Adrian was so impressed with the quality of the finish that he started a conversation with Paul which resulted in them going into business together.

Phoenix Wraps have already secured two contracts with a local transport company. Several of Paul’s previous clients have also brought their business across to the new company.

Adrian said: "It’s been a dream start for Phoenix Wraps. Paul has got a very good reputation within the industry and we have already developed a very promising amount of interest in the new business.

"We have invested in the latest software to enable us to create 3D renders of the vehicles which can clearly illustrate to clients exactly what their vehicle will look like once completed. Just about any type of finish is possible due to the vast range of colours and materials we use, you’re only limited by your imagination!”
