the #1 pro tools brand in Canada, is now penetrat- ing the U.S. market with full paint programs and a variety of products unique to American painters. "Like HYDE ® , RICHARD is a pro-oriented brand supported by a strong research and innovation process," notes Corey Talbot, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development. "Our first- hand knowledge of the pro market definitely in- forms our new product mix, and many of the new products we offer are significant refinements to painters' everyday, must-carry items." Among products being released in both brands this year is a line of joint knives with a flip-up #2 screw bit — the size used by drywall professionals. In airless spray, a new dual head tip extension promises twice the productivity and a better finish for paint pros. HYDE ® will also preview a new streamlined version of its RVT ® Spray System, which is slotted for release this summer. For DIY markets, two new Better Finish ™ wall repair products replace spackle with drywall com- pound – and in the process eliminate consumers' top three complaints about drywall repair. "Retailers looking for profitable new items will find them here," said Talbot, "but they'll also find complete and cohesive category programs that have been created by category specialists. Where we once had several safety knives, we now have a full line. Where we once carried a few innovative dust-free sanders, we now own the category, with a complete line of sanders that spans DIY and pro use. "In short," says Talbot, "We have a two-brand program that's ideal for North American selling, plus full programs that incorporate new products to meet consumer and pro demand. I call that a win-win, and look forward to bringing new growth to Hyde's North American retail customers."
