Valspar Corp. is set to become the flagship paint for British retailer B&Q, according to an announcement from the Minneapolis-based manufacturer. Valspar will supply a full selection of its premium paint to all 350 B&Q locations in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Previously, B&Q's stores offered primarily ready-mix Valspar paints in a smaller assortment of colors and textures. The new retail concept will be rolled out to all locations throughout 2013.
