About Johnstone’s

We have a long history as one of the UK's foremost professional trade-paint brands and are part of a company that has been at the forefront of the global paint market since 1890.

With over 130 years of experience servicing the painting and decorating trade we have the products and the people to help you get the job done. From our own manufactured brands, we offer a comprehensive range of high-performance trade paints, woodcare products and performance coatings. We work hand in hand with you – our customers – and our global research and development teams to provide new and technically advanced products.

We are committed to progressing product performance in order to meet your needs, because we understand that you care about your work, that you demand high quality, and that you believe in the best possible results (just like we do). Each one of our 200 decorating centres stock a wide range of products to meet the exacting standards of the professional painter and decorator, plus all the accessories and sundries you might need.

We’re also very proud of our colour knowledge and credentials. Because of our experience of working across all areas of the industry, we really do know the colours and combinations that work best. So whether you require bespoke colour schemes, painted colour samples, or general colour advice, we can provide the ideas and answers you need from our comprehensive colour offering.

We now also offer a wide variety of fully certified external wall insulation (EWI) and render systems. EWI is a highly effective way of insulating a building, which works through the application of insulation panels to the exterior walls of a property, followed by coating them in a tough, durable, and attractive render system.

We are proud to be part of PPG Industries who are one of the world’s largest suppliers of paints and coatings. Our technical advisory and consultancy services available from PPG mean that we are on hand for painter and decorators, specifiers, designers, facilities managers and all kind of professionals looking for assistance on key issues that affect your day to day.

Our store teams have a wealth of knowledge and experience, and they're always ready to help over a complimentary tea or coffee!
