DeBeer Refinish celebrated its 25th anniversary in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) on 1 September. The brand began 25 years ago in an office in the backyard of ANZ Director Richard Reneman. Since then, thanks to the efforts of many people, it has grown into a trusted and respected refinishing brand supporting the livelihood of thousands of individuals across Australia and New Zealand.
“The brand has seen several changes of ownership in this time and currently forms part of the Sherwin-Williams Group, one of the largest coatings manufacturers in the world,” DeBeer said. “Through these times, the DeBeer Refinish brand continues to be steadfast in the promise of quality, performance, colour precision, ongoing innovation, and system simplicity.”
Coinciding with the anniversary, Sherwin-Williams officially opened its new, state-of-the-art head office and training centre, with the 1000-square-metre facility providing a further stepping stone for future sustained growth over decades to come.
The building houses a large training room with flexible layout, spray booth, and large mixing area for product testing and group training. There’s also a colour lab, modern meeting rooms, and an open and spacious reception area.
