Company Profile
Established in 1981 to provide the theatre industry with a single source for specialist theatre hardware and paints. We cater for Stage Managers, Production Managers, Workshop Managers, Scenic Artists, Engineers, Carpenters, Painters, and Propmakers.

We are the major retailer of theatrical goods in the UK employing over 40 staff. Our large distribution centre in Deptford, London, enables us to ensure orders are swiftly and accurately dispatched. Our now significant buying power allows us to pass on excellent value to our customers, and our unrivalled experience ensures that the products we stock are perfectly suited to the arts and entertainments industries, with a specific focus on theatre. Our client base also includes shop display and outfitters, schools and universities, museums and art galleries, and the film and television industries.

Flints is a business that genuinely cares about not just the arts and entertainments industries, but also our local community, and the staff we employ. These principles are laid out in our Quality Manual as part of our ISO 9001 accreditation. We have recently achieved London Living Wage accreditation and are delighted to be able to properly support our staff in this way, unlike so many bigger businesses out there.
