Who We Are

Established in the UK under Valtti Ltd in 1983, Tikkurila UK has spent over four decades operating throughout the UK in sectors varying from interior design to nuclear engineering. Headquartered in Edinburgh, Scotland, Tikkurila UK has grown from strength to strength while serving the United Kingdom with premium Nordic paint. We also have a second location in St. Helen's, outside Manchester, England, to stay connected to our customers.

Our range of decorating and industrial products remains unaltered for the UK market. We uphold Scandinavian principles directly within our UK operations, ensuring sustainability, quality, support, and service are fundamental to everything we do.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

At Tikkurila, sustainability isn't just a goal; it's a way of life. We believe in leaving a positive impact on the world around us, and that starts with our commitment to sustainability.

We're dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint by manufacturing products designed for long-lasting results and extended lifespans. Equally important is our focus on educating our customers to select the right solutions to achieve these goals. Our paints are tinted to order to minimise manufacturing waste, and we prioritise water-based paints and high-quality raw materials with minimal environmental impact.
