30 Years in Business!
Decor8 Northern is celebrating 30 years in business this year.
The company has enjoyed three decades of growth, supplying many different customer groups including painters and decorators, painting contractors, local authorities, hotels, property developers, breweries, factories of all types and of course the general public. From its inception in 1985 the main driver for the growth and direction of the company has been to deliver quality products at affordable prices. The directors and staff are continually exploring new, leading technologies from around Europe for the British market and to deliver such cutting edge, innovative products in a professional and reliable manner.
The company started trading in 1985 in the Lancashire town of Accrington, dealing with leading suppliers like Leyland, Johnstones, Manders and Sigma Paints. With the opening of the central Manchester branch the company rebranded as Decor8 (Northern) Ltd.
In 2005 a Trade Centre and Distribution Depot opened in Bury, Lancashire, which provided the opportunity to expand the distribution of products all over Great Britain. The Rustoleum brand was hugely successful for the company with national accounts such as Leyland, Johnstones Trade Centres, Crown Paints and many UK wide independent merchants.
Nowadays, we are well-known for our two decorators’ stores – in Manchester and Bury – which aim to be a one-stop-shop for the busy decorator and tradesperson. We carry large stocks of a full range of decorators’ supplies, materials, and equipment from all the leading brands and at great prices.
We’re also famous for our market-leading online stores offering the benefits of Internet purchasing combined with our great prices and next-day delivery nationwide. In fact, we’re celebrating our 30th birthday by launching our newest ecommerce outlet – the Decor8 Northern Online Store!
