Zak McLaughlan’s Medal of Excellence


Diamond Alloys has a reputation of aiming to be the best. This includes having the latest machinery, best techniques and most importantly the most skilled technicians. In this case, Zak McLaughlan, specialist paint technician at Diamond Alloys who won the Medal of Excellence award in 2008 for best painter. This was a worldwide award meaning Zak was up against many other countries, yet despite this Zak took the gold medal.


Zak McLaughlan started out as an apprentice at Solus until Phil Murdoch, Director of Diamond Alloys, recognized his talent and took him on as an apprentice. Diamond Alloys was recently featured in the Bodyshop magazine where Phil speaks about Zak and says “I know his standard of work is exceptional and to have him on-board is a big asset to the business. He, along with the rest of the team are great to be around”.


Zak’s role is to provide a wide range of specialist custom paint effects alongside an excellent service. Customers can choose from a wide selection of custom paint schemes and even have a glitter effect (should they wish) in fact, there is pretty much nothing that Zak and the Diamond Alloys team cannot achieve when asked.


Phil Murdoch, Director of Diamond Alloys, has spent a lot of time and money investing into the business, but one of the biggest accomplishments was taking Zak on; as Phil says he is a big asset to the business. Phil says “Zak is one of the best around, and it is an honour to have one of the best to work with us” which clearly shows how proud our Director is of Zak.
