the first choice for flooring professionals

About Us

F. Ball and Co. Ltd. is the UK's leading manufacturer of floor preparation products and flooring adhesives.

Founded in 1886, the company remains family-owned and has built its success on a continual approach to research and product development. This has resulted in a market leading product range, carefully matched to the requirements of flooring professionals throughout the world.

The specialist range of products comprises adhesives for decorative floorcoverings, smoothing underlayments for most types of subfloor, waterproof surface membranes, primers and a wide selection of professional tools and accessories.

The company keeps abreast of market developments by continually monitoring the needs of installers, distributors and specifiers and by maintaining on-going and close liaison with floorcovering manufacturers.

In order to provide our customers with a first class service, we offer expert technical advice and support in a variety of ways. Our Technical Service Department is available during the working day to answer any queries over the phone or by e-mail. On-site support is provided by a team of Technical Representatives, covering the UK and Ireland. A range of technical literature is also published by F. Ball including the annual 'Recommended Adhesive Guide' (RAG), featuring adhesive recommendations for over 5,000 floorcoverings from over 200 leading international floorcovering manufacturers.

Serving the flooring industry worldwide has become an increasingly important part of F. Ball's business and the company currently distributes products through an international network of specialist agents and distributors. A subsidiary company, F. Ball and Co. (Asia) Pte Ltd based in Singapore, services the needs of the Asian Pacific Rim region.
