Providing Long Lasting, Reliable Solutions Since 1927

For 90 years Watco has been formulating durable, innovative solutions for your premises. We have grown to become the leading UK manufacturer and direct supplier of industrial strength products. Over these nine decades a lot has changed.

Our History

Established in 1927, Watco originally provided specialist wood care and timber treatments, before expanding our range to include dustproofers and sealers for concrete surfaces. The Watco name became well known for improving warehouses and working environments, providing effective solutions for reducing dust, and making floors easier to clean. Soon, our range expanded to include concrete floor paint, which was used to help repair and rebuild across the country after WWII.

The 1970s were a big decade for innovation at Watco. We became the first company to produce and sell two-pack epoxy resin products directly to the end user. They were specialist products which were designed by our chemists to be accessible to non-specialists – easy to use but with excellent quality results. We introduced Concrex, an epoxy resin repair mortar, which remains a bestseller today. Our anti slip range was growing, and Safety Grip was improving safety conditions for businesses all over the UK. These were radical, innovative products at the time, and their popularity has helped shape Watco into the company we are today.

Since the 1990s, the Watco success story has spread to France, Germany, and the USA, while our products are being exported worldwide. We continue to be at the forefront of the design and innovation of flooring products, creating unique formulations to bring you products which do things that others don’t.
