Our Story

Likeminded Painters Australia began in 2014 with a simple idea; create a hub of painting businesses that leverage product knowledge, insight and buying power to deliver greater value to each business in the group.

Our founder, Clayton Coughlan (aka ‘Coggie’) is a very passionate individual and has worked hard on his idea. With a foundation built on trust, integrity and longstanding relationships, Likeminded Painters Australia will quickly built a reputation of providing value to members by leveraging the power of one buying group.

Into the future , Likeminded Painters Australia plans to continue to deliver value to its members by connecting them to the right suppliers, providing the right solutions at the right price. Our members will start to enjoy immediate savings from the moment they join.

What is a Buying Group?

A Buying Group is a membership-based organisation that pulls together the combined buying power of all its members to negotiate discounts with suppliers.

Likeminded Painters Australia negotiates with suppliers to establish discounted national pricing for the members we represent. As a member, you purchase directly from the suppliers at that discounted price.

You deal with the suppliers direct, including opening accounts and making payments. No money comes through Likeminded Painters Australia.

We will provide you with information about how to access the discounted prices – some suppliers require an account while some accept cash purchases quoting a discount code or showing your membership card.

Our Vision

To use our collective strengths to improve member’s buying prices and maximise member’s returns, whilst not interfering with member’s ability to stay in control of their own business.
