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. Now reaching far and beyond the Land Rover market, embracing all heritage projects whether on land, air or water.

Today, whilst still benefiting from Dave’s wealth of knowledge and experience in the Land Rover world, Paintman Paint aims to offer the best quality heritage Coach Enamel Paint for any restoration or original project that requires an aesthetically beautiful finish.

Currently based in Retford, Nottinghamshire in purpose-built premises, Paintman Paint uses the traditional methods to hand craft its Coach Enamel to order.

Whilst predominately an e-commerce business, Paintman takes pride in the personal service available to customers; the Paintman team are always willing to help and support where requested and really enjoy seeing all of our customer’s projects come to fruition.

Our sister site, Paintman Panels, offers an array of Land Rover panels. Produced in Britain, the best quality is always guaranteed. Check out our website at www.paintmanpanels.co.uk.
