Protek- Transforming Gardens for over 30 years. Independent UK Manufacturers of wood paint and stain. Est 1983. We are a family owned and run manufacturing business based in Somerset. Our business was set up over 30 years ago with a vision to sell quality wood stains, decorative timber coatings and preservatives. As a result we developed products that gave good coverage, were effective and long lasting, yet were kind to the environment. Our Environment- whilst everyone else was using harsh and toxic chemicals, such as creosote, we bucked the trend and developed our range using only water based technology. It’s a value we have had since the business started …and we still live by it today. Our water based paints contain low or minimal VOC and low odour, which makes them Child, Animal and Plant safe, and clearing up is easy too…as the brushes and rollers can be washed in warm soapy water.
