Dulux celebrates centenary by opening new facility

Dulux has launched a brand new $165 million facility in Melbourne’s north as part of its centenary celebrations. The paint company has also created 67 new full time jobs onsite in Merrifield.

At 22,000 square-metres, the factory is the largest paint facility in Australia or New Zealand.

Dulux is set to produce 50 million litres of water-based paint this year, estimated to be half of the Australian market.

An annual poll by Reader’s Digest in 2017 named Dulux as Australia’s most trusted paint brand.

The iconic paint manufacturer and supplier had its origins in Adelaide when rival companies Clarkson Ltd. and Australiasian United Paints were bought by British Australian Lead Manufacturers in 1918 and settled in Sydney.

In the last four years Dulux has re-entered the road transport market. Dulux FleetShield, the company’s premium painting application, has been signed-off for use across the Linfox fleet.

Developed locally, Dulux FleetShield comes with a 10-year warranty.

Linfox has used the first applications across some of its trailers.
