Rabart Decorators Merchants is a family run business established over 35 years ago.
We have 65 + years experience in the paint industry with more than 35 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 Decorators Merchants 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 focused 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 ten shops in South Wales and South West England and we have over 60 employees.
The management team now consists of Alan and Stuart’s sons, Robert, Andrew and Matthew Bush, and Richard Thomas joined the Senior Management Team in 2019 as the Group Sales and Operations Manager.
Rabart continues to go from strength to strength and we are always looking for new business opportunities to expand, develop 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 many years to come.
