Hi-tech painter of luxury cars races ahead with BGF

First set up in 1988 in founder James Sharp’s shed, Paintbox now supplies automotive body kits and hi-tech spray paint processing to a host of car brands. The Midlands-based company started out by servicing the F1 industry, and now counts Bentley and Jaguar Land Rover amongst its customers.
