DuluxGroup supply chain investments

23 April 2015

DuluxGroup has announced two significant supply chain investments: the construction of a factory in Melbourne to make water-based decorative paints and the establishment of a purpose-built distribution centre in Sydney, replacing two existing distribution centres.
The new paint factory will produce nearly all of Dulux Australia’s water-based decorative paints, which are currently manufactured at the Rocklea factory in Queensland.
The Rocklea factory will be retained but will operate at a reduced manning level, focusing on the production of solvent-based decorative paint products. Construction is expected to commence late in 2015 and completion is targeted for late 2017.
The distribution centre will be established in Sydney to replace Dulux’s NSW distribution centre at Padstow and Selleys’ national distribution centre at Moorebank, NSW, both of which are currently operated by DuluxGroup. It will be built, owned and operated by Linfox, under a similar arrangement as its Dulux distribution centre in Victoria.
