About Us

About Us

Following many years experience within the Land Rover industry, our director, David Pickles took over Paintman Paint Ltd in 2013. As a result of being inundated with enquiries about sourcing heritage paint for the restoration of Land Rovers, Dave saw an opportunity to develop this bespoke product and service, embracing all heritage projects whether on land, air or water.
Situated in Retford, UK. Paintman now boasts its own purpose built industrial unit.
