Likeminded Painters Australia are pleased to be partnered with Wattyl as one of our main paint supplier’s and look forward to our joint venture and facilitating our members in becoming more profitable.
Wattyl is a highly regarded and well recognised brand in Australia. Its innovative, quality products meet the challenges associated with the harsh extremes of the local environment. Products are designed to provide optimum performance, improve efficiency and reduce operating costs. Hempel Group acquired the Wattyl brands from Sherwin-Williams in 2021, further strengthening the Wattyl brand by bringing expertise and experience from one of the worlds most unique coatings companies.
Wattyl’s origins date back to 1915 when, in an Australian backyard, H.R. Walters developed a treatment for reviving French-polished furniture. This innovative product, known as ‘Crystal Veneer’, became an immediate success and laid the foundation of Wattyl’s future. Since then, Wattyl has grown to become one of the leading paint brands in Australia with iconic brands such as Solagard, Estapol, Granosite and a lesser extent Solver.
Something very notable is Hempel Group is fully owned by the Hempel Foundation, whose primary purpose is to maintain a solid financial and economic base for the Hempel Group. The secondary focus of the Foundation is philanthropic, sustaining our planet’s biodiversity, supporting research into sustainable coating technology and empowering children living in poverty to learn through education.
