About Us

We’re grafters and we are proud of it.

We are specialists in the services we provide, all our employees have worked in the automotive paint, vehicle repair and coachbuilding industries since we left school, for some of us that means over 40 years' experience each!!

Bartco was founded in March 2006 by partners Stephen Bartlett and Andrew (Dick) Barton, up to then both Steve and Dick had worked in the industry for various local companies and decided to start up in business themselves.

Things got off to a slow start but gradually the business built up into the busy centre of paint, filler, fabrication and friendly banter that it is today. Sadly, in 2016 Dick passed away after battling with cancer, he was hard working and popular, and is missed by everyone that knew him. Bartco is now solely under the care of Steve Bartlett and the business continues to grow.

As well as providing a comprehensive commercial HGV, LGV and private vehicle painting, refinishing and repair service Bartco have recently expanded their capabilities by employing experienced coachbuilders and adding extra workshop space to their facility just off the A40 at Cassington West Oxfordshire.With this new investment and our existing paint booths we are now able to provide a 'one stop solution' to Oxfordshires commercial vehicle businesses for all their coachbuilding, repair and painting requirements.

"The first layer of paint is the most important"

As well as repair and refinishing work we also paint newly built commercial vehicles for companies like Kel-berg and aviation refuelling specialists Flightline Support, both these companies are leaders and inovators and expect nothing but the best finish for their products.
