Tikkurila is powered in the UK by Valtti Ltd. Established in 1982, the business has grown over the years to where we are today; an established paint company supplying Professional, Decorative, and Industrial customers alike. But our values remain the same.
Valtti Ltd is a business with its people at the core and a responsibility to make improvements for the future. In an effort to become a more responsible, socially aware brand that is continually evolving, we are embarking on new charitable partnerships and sustainable developments in 2021 and beyond.

Work For Good - Donations
A new venture for 2021, Valtti Ltd have partnered with Work for Good to support charitable causes close to our hearts. Work for Good helps to unlock "untapped, sustainable income for charities" and allows small businesses to support causes they care about while reducing the resources required on the charity's end to ensure donations are compliant.
We started things off over Cyber Weekend for a cause close to our hearts. Find out more here.
Since 2018, we have been proudly collaborating with New Start Highland, a social enterprise based in Inverness that is dedicated to addressing poverty, homelessness, and long-term unemployment in the Highlands.
New Start Highland collects full and partially full paint containers from various retailers, which are then used in various ways. Whether it is donated to local charities, used for employability training, sold at a significant discount to charitable enterprises, or even used for furniture renovations that are then distributed to the local authority for service provision.
As part of our full-cycle approach to sustainability, we are constantly looking at ways to reduce the waste generated by our Warehouse and significantly mimimise any volume of paint that go to landfill. This programme allows us to donate miscoloured and unused stock that will benefit a variety of businesses and individuals in the UK. Profits from paint sales are repurposed to support New Start Highland's services.
