New name for Artex

Artex is now Okarno

Artex is both a type of textured plaster and a distribution company that sells Artex plaster as well as  Thistle, Gyproc, Weber and Blue Hawk renders and coatings.

Saint Gobain said that adopting a new brand name  for its Artex business “better reflects what the company does as an essential supply chain partner for a range of leading construction products”.

Artex will remain as a product brand name for those who still want swirly finishes on their walls or ceilings. It was very popular in the 1970s, either for disguising surface flaws or simply for those who liked swirly patterns. In those days it was reinforced with asbestos but many building products at that time incorporated this material.

Jason Smith, managing director of Okarno, said: “The Okarno brand represents a modern yet adaptable style that retains links to our heritage. This is important for our customers as we have strong and deep roots in our market place. It’s important to remember that although we have a new name, we are still the same great business, with the same great products and people.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
