Mylands has been at the heart of the British film and television industry from the very start.
Even before the emergence of Pinewood Studios in 1935, Mylands was an established name within the British Film Industry. Countless independent studios were energising the British movie industry. Mylands’ paints, pigments and colours, combined with our French polishing and wood finishing expertise, were helping to set the scene for great pictures from the earliest days. When Pinewood emerged as one of the new ‘super-studios’, Mylands was the obvious partner.
By the 1950s Mylands was also manufacturing revolutionary floor paints for television studios that could be washed off or recoated many times a day. Today, we are the market leader in washable studio floor paint.
Many of our emulsion paints our still made to original formulations using natural earth pigments, a rarity in paint production today. This gives our paints a unique quality ideally suited to scenic construction, which is why they are widely used in theatre, film and television to this day.
With such a long history of supply to the industry, we understand what studios need. We can produce high quality colours in many mediums and almost any quantities overnight, for use in the UK or for export to production companies around the world.
At Mylands we’re proud of the key role we play in keeping the UK at the forefront of the international film and TV industry. We firmly believe that the UK creative industries will continue to thrive, with Mylands at their heart.
