DuluxGroup has invested in a new $165m manufacturing facility to produce the majority of Dulux Australia’s water based decorative paint requirements. The new factory is currently being constructed in the new Merrifield Business Park located in Mebourne’s North – 30km from the CBD. The investment in a new state of the art, highly automated paint factory allows Dulux to step into the next generation of paint manufacturing technology and innovation. The new factory will enable the company to produce more advanced paint products using evolving technology in resins with even greater levels of quality and consistency.
The Merrifield facility will be the largest coatings factory in Australia and New Zealand, and with the purchase of 17ha of land, will support the Dulux paints business for decades to come. It’s strategic location on the Hume Highway provides good connectivity to the Eastern Seaboard. It also provides access to a skilled workforce in a growing region to support the business now and into the future.
