Company Profile & History
Rustin's origins go back to 1924 when Sidney Rustin openedhis first
shop selling wood finishing products to local residents & trades-people. 

Today the company remains a family run & owned business and now
employs over 100 people.

In 1947 Rustin's produced the "Handy Polish Kit" - the first kit of it's kind
for the DIY market. Rustin's was also the first to manufacture products
such as Danish Oil, Liquid Wallpaper Remover and Plastic Coating.

The company is looking to the future to develop exciting new products
that satisfy a consumer need for greater choice and environmental awareness.

On a business trip to the UK In 1979 Len Smith met with Ronnie Rustin, 
owner of Rustin's and after some discussion the first small pallet of assorted Rustinís products was exported to Australia. 

Len used these products for his own woodturning & French polishing restoration work. After discovering the high quality of Rustinís, Len began to demonstrate and sell the products through his teaching & woodwork supply business.

Len Smith still owns and operates his Australian family owned  business The Woodsmith Pty Ltd in Melbourne.

Len's son Phillip manages "Rustin's Australia" a division of The Woodsmith Pty Ltd, which remains the appointed sole Australian Importer and Distributor of the range of Rustinís quality woodfinishes, with outlets throughout Australia.
