Our Redditch site was established in 2008 following the acquisition of Carrs Paints, which was originally founded in 1892. The Carrs name brought with it a tradition of excellence in manufacturing and services.

Customers and suppliers trust in the experience, professionalism and competency to meet the diverse requirements of the paint and coatings industry in the UK and worldwide.

Our employees are long serving and proud of our heritage. They focus on consistent, high quality services with on-time despatch to global markets.

The skill, experience and talent of our Manufacturing Services Team ensures that your production receives dedicated attention and support.

Competing in today’s markets requires companies to be lean in order to survive and thrive. By outsourcing your paint coatings and requirements to us, we can help you maintain your competitive edge and profitability.

The Redditch site is dedicated to the provision of toll manufacturing and support services. It is centrally located to expedite shipping in the UK and abroad.


Research and development has always been central to our business and we have specialist research facilities across the UK.

Our teams of chemists spearhead a 'Continuous Improvement' philosophy, which enables us to constantly improve the performance of our products.

We work closely with the world's leading raw material suppliers and these relationships have enabled us to introduce many innovative coatings into our range and satisfy the increasing requirement for environmentally compliant coatings.

We have a formal 'Right first time - Every time' philosophy and our Quality Management Systems (QMS) are fully approved to the ISO 9001:2008 accreditation.
