Colormaker Industries Turns 60 with a Big Birthday Bash!

Colormaker Industries celebrates our 60th Birthday this year in 2018. We’ve come a long way since our inception in 1958, as a small paint manufacturer based in southern Sydney, manufacturing Pelican water-based paints.

To celebrate our 60th Birthday, we’ll be running a series of Birthday events, offering compelling specials to both our consumer and trade customers plus some free gifts to all of our loyal customers.  The first of these ’60th Birthday Sale’ events commences in April.

There’ll be some fun events happening at Colormakers Shop and factory complex, 44 Orchard Road Brookvale; including a fabulous mural painted by acclaimed Sydney street artist, Mulga the Artist, using some brilliant colours from the Permaplastik scenic paint range.  Here’s an example of one of Mulga’s amazing murals painted using our Permplastik glow paints.

Permaplastik scenic glow paints are used by street artist Mulga the Artist to create amazing glow murals like this elephant mural in Randwick.

About Colormaker’s History

The original Colormaker Industries building at 44 Orchard Road Brookvale, circa 1960.

The company commenced operations in Brookvale in 1958, originally known as G & H Chemical Industries founded by Mr Gregory Givorshner from the Ukraine. At this time the company manufactured enamel house paints, with Mr Givorshner originally producing his own resins in a gas kettle!

In the 1960’s, the company began manufacturing water based house paints, moving their production to the current location at 44 Orchard Road, Brookvale. During the early 1970’s there was a joint venture with a company called Permapaints in Coogee which manufactured Permaset inks and Permaplastik sign writing colours. However eventually Mr Givorshner bought out his partner in Permapaints, consolidating both companies into Colormaker Industries and manufacturing house paints under the brand Pelican Paints.

Owner of Colormaker Industries, David Stuart.

Colormaker’s current owner, David Stuart, has a long history on the peninsula. He was born in Manly Hospital and raised in Mosman and the Lower North Shore. David commenced his involvement with Colormaker Industries originally as Sales Manager. His passion for the coatings sector, and Australian research and development, combined with his insight into the potential of high quality paints and an environmentally friendly inks range, inspired him to take over Colormaker Industries in 2003. With David’s background in industrial chemistry, Colormaker developed some premium new product ranges including:

  • LUXAPOOL premium pool and aquatic coatings
  • Permaset Aqua eco-friendly screen printing inks
  • ACRYLMERIC building and trade construction coatings range
  • Colormaker house and architectural paints

This product range constantly evolves, and is continuously upgraded through a vigorous R & D program to keep up to date with the latest technologies.
