Supplier update: Haymes Paint

Rated "Best in Australia" five years in a row by Canstar

The paint company has claimed Canstar Blue's "Most Satisfied Customers - House Paint" award for 2022

The latest award from Canstar Blue is Haymes Paint's fifth in a row, rounding out half a decade of excellence for the largest Australian made and owned paint manufacturer.

Haymes Paint topped six of its major competitors in the "House Paint" category including British Paints, Dulux, Accent, Wattyl, Berger and Taubmans.

In addition, it is the only paint manufacturer to score the maximum five stars across the board for overall satisfaction, durability, ease of application, quality of finish, value for money and variety/range. Haymes Paint CEO, Rod Walton, said:

Australians have spoken, and we could not be more proud to be their most trusted and respected paint manufacturer.
To win this award for five years in a row is very humbling, and only made possible by the commitment of the entire Haymes Paint team to strive for excellence in all areas of our business.
Every member of our team loves what they do and lives by our core values of passion, trust and respect and are driven by the motivation to continue deliver quality products to all our customers. It is pleasing to see that passion reflected so positively on our loyal customers and partners.

Canstar Blue works alongside respected market research companies to ask everyday Australians about their experiences with purchased products and services. The "Most Satisfied Customers" award reflects the views of over 1,600 survey respondents from across the country.

Canstar Blue group manager, Morgan Montova applauded the team at Haymes, and said:

This is quite an incredible achievement for the Haymes Paint team. In such a competitive industry, it can certainly be difficult to maintain consistently high customer satisfaction ratings over a long period.

Mr Walton said:

To see our products rated so highly by the Australian public for half a decade now is incredibly rewarding. Whether it's our research and development team, our manufacturers in Ballarat, or our customer service specialists across our Haymes Paint Shops, everyone works together to create high-quality products that last.
To know those products are not just being used - but also enjoyed - by our customers is all we can ask for.

Haymes Paint has maintained its head office and manufacturing in Ballarat where it all began. This decision has been instrumental in providing employment and growth to the region, and has allowed the business to maintain its local identity.

It currently has a network of over 58 Haymes Paint Shops and 34 PaintRight stores, and is proud to partner with more than 220 independent paint specialists and hardware stockists nationally.
