Craig & Rose and Soudal join BHETA

Published: 31 January 2019 - Kiran Grewal

It has been announced that Craig & Rose and Soudal have both joined the British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA).

Craig & Rose was established in 1829 by Scottish entrepreneurs James Craig & Hugh Rose. It became renowned for manufacturing superior quality paints, and professional painters and decorators quickly adopted it as their brand of choice. At that time, paint was milled, and competitors used to grind raw materials twice. Always keen to go the extra mile, Craig & Rose was known for its triple grinding. Over the years, Craig & Rose has won prestige contracts, such as painting the iconic Forth Bridge and manufacturing paint for St Paul’s Cathedral. Today it combines heritage with current trend expertise to offer a variety of ranges for the modern home including entirely bespoke options.

Soudal UK, part of the Soudal Group is Europe’s leading independent manufacturer of sealants, PU-Foams and adhesives. The brand is familiar to professionals in construction, retail channels and industrial assembly. With 45 years of experience with end-users in over 130 countries worldwide, eleven manufacturing sites on four continents and 35 subsidiaries worldwide, Soudal ensures optimal technical and logistical support.

BHETA’s sector director form home improvement, Paul Grinsell said: “This is terrific news and follows on very positively from the influx of hand tools companies which have come on board thanks to BHETA welcoming the FBHTM on board. Brands joining BHETA as a consequence include Thor Hammer which has specialised in non-damaging, soft faced hammers and mallets since 1923. Norbar is devoted exclusively to the design, development and production of torque tightening and measuring equipment, offering torque tool and instrument calibration and recalibration services to the original factory standard on four continents. It has the widest range of torque tools in the world."
