About Us

Teamac is one of the leading brands of marine paints and coatings. The range of products include marine grade varnishes, topcoats, undercoats, primers, antifouling, bilge paint and other specialist marine coatings.

The name Teamac comes from a shortened version of the company name Teal & Mackrill Ltd. Mr Arthur Teal and Mr Harold Mackrill established the company in 1908, making it a limited company in 1913. The Teamac brand was registered in 1920. 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.


Today, Teal & Mackrill is famous for its high quality specialist marine and functional paints. The company supplies these coatings under the "Teamac" and "Coo-Var" brands throughout Europe, the company now has a substantial "Own Branding" division to meet demands for custom bespoke products. There are further plans to expand the Hull Based production and distribution facility which will handle the ever increasing demands.


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 Teamac remains a UK manufactured brand.
