Bartoline Limited, a privately-owned family business first established in 1876, is Europe’s leading manufacturer of decorating sundries for the home improvement industry.
Originally founded as coal importers/exporters, the company diversified into automotive and industrial lubricant blenders at the turn of the century. The mid 1970’s saw a change of direction into decorating products.
In 1999, the company acquired wallcovering adhesive and filler manufacturer Modus Products, which enabled product expansion away from traditional solvent products into a wider array of decorating sundries. As a result, the business grew quickly, and together with the in-house development of other product ranges, an increased market share was realised.
