Nice to see the wonderful art deco Glasso Paint factory building is still there in Wadsworth Road, Perivale.
The managers Rover 12 has gone though :)

I remember the Parrot adverts, but from where I don't know, I would have been far too young to be reading motor magazines at the time.

"Founded as Glasso Paint Products in the 1920s in Greenford Middlesex to manufacture Glasurit products under license. there were two owners, both German. (One later became a British subject.)

"After WWII, the German Glasurit company, which was German paint and lacquer company founded Max Winkelmann in Hamburg in 1888 was acquired by BASF

From technical data sheets we know they were still using the name Glasso Paint Products in June 1952 but sometime after this date, the company name was changed to General Industrial Paints or as its more familiar name G.I.P. In the mid-70s, General Industrial Paints sold the "Glasso" trademark and the parrot [not a Norwegian Blue] back to BASF. Until then, BASF could not sell its international vehicle refinishing brand in the UK."

I spent some time working on the North Acton trading estate in the mid 60s. The architecture was very similar to this, presumably all built at roughly the same time between the two WWs.
