The history of Dulux Valentine dates back to the 18th century and began in the United States, where Valentine, an American of French origin, specialized in painting for horse-drawn carriages. It was then in 1925 that France welcomed the company under the name of Compagnie des Vernis Valentine from the American company and the Lemoine establishments. The brand moved to Gennevilliers and it then specialized in paints and varnishes dedicated to the automobile. It was then necessary to wait until 1930 for Dulux Valentine to embark on decorative paintings. From then on, the brand saw its notoriety grow to become one of the major players in the world of decorative painting.
