Rabart expand with Bailey Paints
Merthyr-based decorating merchants Rabart have purchase Bailey Paints, the Stroud based paint supplier.
Rabart Decorators Merchants is a family-run business with ten trade and commercial sales centres across South Wales and the South West. The acquisition of Bailey Paints is the latest addition to the growing business following the opening of their Warminster branch in November 2020.
Bailey Paints has been established for more than 120 years in Stroud, with owner Richard Townsend running the business since 1989. Richard will continue to work alongside the new owners as the group’s Production Manager.
Commenting on the announcement, Alan and Stuart Bush, owners of Rabart Decorators Merchants, said, “We are always looking to expand and grow the business. When the opportunity arose to purchase Bailey Paints, we were very excited to go for it due to its prime location, the team’s expertise in industrial paints, and their ability to manufacture paint on-site.
“We are really looking forward to working alongside Richard Townsend and the highly-skilled work force at Bailey Paints, and we are confident that the group as a whole will benefit from.“
