Last month saw the launch of Quiksilver by VTC Silvergate which believes that this service will turn the industry on its head by creating 150 colours which can be delivered in any quantity from 5 kilos to 5 tonnes within 48 hours of close of business on the date of order.

VTC Silvergate is prepared to give an immediate 50% off if the 48-hour delivery deadline is not met and, if delivery is still not made after 72 hours, to give 100% discount – in other words the customer will get the order free of charge.
