Ecolour is actively seeking to improve the air quality in living and working environments around the country. Highlighting these benefits to potential customers has been a key part of our expansion strategy. Ecolour is already having an impact, the use of our products recently helped Grocon (a major Australian property developer) to secure an important sustainability award in 2014: http://www.thefifthestate.com.au/archives/65394/.
The paints and surface coverings market in Australia is worth around AUD$3bil annually (US$100bil globally). Six years after launching, Ecolour is gaining significant traction in the domestic market (currently achieving a seven figure turnover). We have a factory in Byron Bay, a trade store in Melbourne, stockists in Queensland, and we deliver direct to site Australia wide. With significant plans for further expansion nationally and internationally over the coming years, Ecolour is well positioned to become a significant success story and demonstrate that manufacturing can have a future in Australia.
