We’re the UK’s leading manufacturer of decorative surfacing products for residential kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms including laminated worktops, acrylic based solid surfacing products, and waterproof panels. Wilsonart markets its products to the commercial markets in the United Kingdom making more than 100,000 worktops each month we’ve been going since the early nineties, but our history goes much farther back.

We’re proudly part of Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces, driven by a mission to create surfaces people love, with service they can count on, delivered by people who care.

Together we’ve enjoyed 60 years of innovation, design and production of beautiful surfaces with no intention of slowing down. Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces was grown from a little company called Ralph Wilson Plastics founded in Temple, Texas, USA in 1956. The rest, as they say, is history.
