Leyland Trade Paints Company Profile

Leyland Trade was established in 1922 and is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of trade paints and coatings. The company has built up a highly respected reputation as a trusted and reliable brand and is widely known as ‘The Professional’s Paint’. Leyland is one of the original manufacturers who has developed a range of emulsion paints for the homeowner and has introduced the Leytex brand, which remains a leading choice for customers today.

All Leyland products are produced under the stringent BSI standards and the manufacturing site is certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. In more recent times, Leyland has progressed from a listed company located in Lancashire, to forming part of the portfolio of PPG Industries, a world renowned manufacturer of coatings for a range of applications.


Leyland products are backed up by a dedicated team of trained and industry experienced technical advisors who are available to provide colour schemes, specifications and technical assistance. There is a free-of-charge colour consultancy service available for professional users. Whether the professional is working to a client’s brief, site drawings or a bespoke colour design service is required, the colour consultant can help at every stage, even assisting with current legislation requirements. An experienced and knowledgeable team of industry professionals are available to carry out site analysis, identify needs and offer high levels of technical specification. Bespoke training packages are also available to help develop staff and add value to a business.


The extensive portfolio of paint products from Leyland has seen numerous changes and developments within the industry over the last eight decades and many of the original product lines including Super Leytex and Truguard (BBA accredited) are still in demand and recognised by professional tradesmen. The comprehensive range of trade quality products comprises of emulsions, glosses, undercoats, floor paints, exterior paints and the Contract range which has been created for new projects.

The product portfolio consists of over six hundred individual product lines encompassing an enormous array of colours and sizes.
