Rabart Decorators Merchants Ltd

We have over 65 years experience in the decorating industry with more than 35 of these being in the sale and distribution of decorating products, so we know its about more than "just paint".

Rabart Decorators Merchants Ltd is a family run business established in 1984.

Our origins lie in the application of paint, when Rupert Alan Bush started a painting and decorating firm called R.A. Bush Decorators in 1954.

30 years later in 1984, Rabart Decorators Merchants Ltd was founded in Merthyr Tydfil by Rupert’s sons, Alan and Stuart Bush based on their experience in the paint trade and understanding of what painting contractors needed from a decorator’s merchant. With the help of Peter Fear who was appointed as General Manager the business started to develop and grown.

The painting and decorating business closed its doors in 2004, and since then the family has focused solely on further developing the Rabart network, increasing our trade and retail customers, developing, and expanding our branches and training and developing our staff.

We currently operate out of multiple locations in South Wales and South West England with the management team consists of Alan and Stuart’s sons, Robert, Andrew and Matthew Bush, alongside Richard Thomas who 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 our customers for many years to come.

"Great store for any decorating supplies my go to store."

"Definitely the best paint supplier that we have visited. Not only are the staff friendly, they certainly know their stuff - in our last visit we were recommended a paint manufactured in Finland which our decorator said it was probably one of the best paint.he had used for some years. Even better this paint was similar in price to the paint you would find in your local
Wickes or B&Q"
