Teal & Mackrill was opened in 1908 by Arthur Teal and Harold Mackrill. Mr Teal left the company in 1941 at the age of 73, leaving the Mackrill family in charge. Harold Mackrill remained as MD until his son Benjamin Mackrill took over in 1962. The company grew and thrived (including the acquisition of the Coo-Var brand in 1968) and in 1999 Benjamin Mackrill died, leaving his son ? the third generation Mackrill as MD. Geoff still remains as MD today. Teal & Mackrill has achieved both the ISO9000 and ISO14000 Quality and Environmental standards and has been recognised by being awarded a British Coatings Federation Environmental Award. The company approach is friendly and down to earth whilst remaining professional and offering good value but high quality products. Teal & Mackrill manufacture and distribute on the Lockwood Street site in Hull and so Coo-Var remains a UK manufactured brand.
