Who We Are

Specialists in supplying lacquers, adhesives and abrasives

Our history

Redwood Innovations was established in 2005 and has its head office and distribution depot in Waterlooville, Hampshire.

Originally established as a supplier of the Anchor Bond brand of adhesives, we worked with manufacturers in wood and gained a reputation for providing reliable adhesive solutions.

Over the next 3 years we expanded the range to include sanding solutions by the well known Sia Abrasives, manufactured in Switzerland.

Moving into 2010, we could see that a trustworthy supplier of wood finishes was also needed by our customer base. Having analysed a number of interior paint brands over the next 2 years in 2012 we began to distribute for the Hesse Lignal paints, lacquers and other wood finishes.

The next move was to add an exterior range of finishing products to our offering and in 2020 we struck a deal with Zobel Coatings as the sole distributor for their range of products in the UK.

In 2022 we rebranded as Redwood and refocused on our passion for building enduring relationships with our customers by sharing our technical expertise, providing innovative solutions and holding ourselves personally accountable for everything we do and say.

Our vision is to assist every responsible manufacturer in wood to become more efficient, improve the operating environment of their staff and reduce their impact on the global environment.
