Rabart is a family run business and has been established for over 30 years.
We have over 60 years experience in the paint industry with more than 30 of these being in the sale and distribution of decorating products. Rupert Alan Bush initially started a painting and decorating firm called R.A. Bush Decorators in 1954 and 30 years later, Rabart was founded in Merthyr Tydfil by Rupert’s sons, Alan and Stuart Bush.
With the brothers’ experience in the paint trade and with the help of Peter Fear who was appointed as General Manager in 1984, the business has developed and grown. The painting and decorating business closed its doors in 2004, and since then the family has focussed on further developing Rabart, increasing our trade and retail customers, developing and expanding our branches and training and developing our staff. We currently operate out of nine shops in South Wales and South West England and we have over 50 employees.
The management team now consists of Alan and Stuart’s sons, Robert, Andrew and Matthew Bush, and despite his retirement in April 2015, Peter Fear remains an integral part of the overall management structure.
Rabart continues to go from strength to strength and we are always looking for new business opportunities to expand and open new branches. We are proud to remain a family-run business and we want to continue to provide a professional and efficient service to all of our customers for years to come.
