About Us

DuluxGroup's origins date back to 1918, with its original heritage in decorative paint for Australian and New Zealand homes. 

Today, DuluxGroup is a leading marketer and manufacturer of premium branded products that protect, maintain and enhance the spaces and places in which we live and work.

From household rooms transformed by colour and texture, to a back garden brimming with spring vegetables, to the latest in garage door design and technology, to the industrial coatings that protect landmark infrastructure such as bridges and the construction chemicals that reinforce them; DuluxGroup products are at work. Our brands have been woven into the fabric of the communities where we operate, helping consumers to live better and more comfortable lives.

DuluxGroup employs approximately 4,000 people in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, South-East Asia, China and the United Kingdom.

Throughout DuluxGroup’s long and successful history we have continuously invested in consumer research, marketing skills and a strong media presence to build market-leading brands with high consumer awareness and demand.
