A cheshire based paint manufacturing company with history stretching back over 130 Years

Britannia Paints is a family company run by directors David Johnstone (MD) and Stephen Johnstone, brothers who draw upon a paint-manufacturing tradition that stretches back to 1890, when their great grandfather James founded Johnstone’s Paints.

James’s son John took over the business in the 1920s and his four sons in turn picked up the reins in the 1960s.

David and Stephen themselves both worked at Johnstone’s Paints for over ten years before combining their expertise to build Britannia into one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of high-performance coating systems.
