Painting can feel hard. You might be worried you’ll choose the wrong colour, or that you’ll mess up. But the reality is, painting is not as difficult as you might think, and the return on your effort can be extraordinary. A coat of paint can truly change the world you live in.
Dulux opened its first New Zealand manufacturing plant in Gracefield, Lower Hutt in 1939. Since then, hundreds of water-based paint and coating products have been produced and distributed throughout New Zealand. For 80 years Dulux has helped protect, maintain and enhance the spaces and places where Kiwis live, work and play. While it is synonymous with creating better homes, Dulux also plays a critical role in creating and improving the infrastructure we see across New Zealand, every day. That’s why we believe ‘If it’s worth doing, it’s worth Dulux.’
Choose Dulux and you’re choosing the leader in colour – offering you more colours and the help and advice to get it right. Plus Dulux paints are formulated to last, with colours that look freshly painted for years. We’re constantly innovating and launching new products, from paints that can survive New Zealand’s extreme weather to paints with antibacterial properties.
We’re proud to say that the Dulux paint you buy in New Zealand is made in New Zealand. Dulux began manufacturing in New Zealand in Gracefield, Lower Hutt in 1939. Since then, hundreds of water-based paint and coating products have been produced and distributed throughout New Zealand enabling us to provide New Zealanders with the very highest quality Dulux paint today and in the decades to come.
Dulux and the Department of Conservation Te Papa Atawhai have been working together since 2013 to protect backcountry DOC huts, historic buildings and other facilities for future generations to enjoy.
