Wattyl, part of the Valspar Group, is a paint and surface coatings business with manufacturing, sales and distribution operations in Australia and New Zealand. The company’s origins date back to 1915 where, in an Australian backyard, H.R. Walters developed a treatment for reviving French-polished furniture.
This innovative product, known as ‘Crystal Veneer’, became an immediate success and laid the foundation for their future achievements.
The company employs over 1,000 people and produces a broad range of paints, varnishes, lacquers and special purpose protective coatings that are used in domestic, commercial and industrial markets.
With a portfolio of leading brands such as Solagard and Forestwood, they continue to build on past innovations to produce technologically advanced, market leading products to suit Australian and New Zealand conditions.
Wattyl is a New Zealand Partner.
