The History of the Tin

DIY Giants Ronseal offer us a look into their past with a nice infographic as they look back over 50 years in the Home Improvement market.

Ronseal is one of the first names many people think of when they talk about DIY, which is probably due to their clever marketing campaign which has made their ‘does exactly what it says on the tin’ slogan an everyday phrase in our society.

It was voted the UK’s third most quoted advertising line in 2011. The public awareness of their brand is perhaps most visible in David Cameron mentioning them when he described the coalition with the liberal democrats as a “Ronseal deal”.

DIY Doctor is proud to stock Ronseal products in the DIY Superstore where we only stock leading brands and innovative products which are professional quality tools of the trade that we would be happy to use ourselves.
