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 2022 and beyond.

Paint 360 - Recycled Paint

We are pleased to announce that we will be collaborating with Paint360 beginning in January 2023. Paint360 specialises in re-engineering waste paint into, a high-quality paint product. The re-engineered paint has a minimum 50% recycled content and has a very low carbon footprint because converting it into a valuable product requires only a few ingredients. It is then used to provide high-quality, environmentally friendly paint to customers in the social housing, facility management, and construction sectors.

Paint360 are a social enterprise that employ those with barriers to employment, while also supporting their personal and professional development.

Paint Donations

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.
