Colormaker Sustainability Celebration

On Friday 5th April, 2024 Colormaker friends, family, staff and supporters from the Solar Alliance Brookvale gathered together for Colormaker’s Sustainability Celebration. At the event Zali Steggall, Sue Heins and James Griffin shared their perspectives on the importance for Northern Beaches businesses to harness the benefits of solar energy and local battery storage and outlined some of the initiatives that are underway at all levels of government to support our local businesses in their transition to net zero.

Colormaker’s Sustainability Celebration marked the official launch of the the ReVolve® battery – which is world-first technlogy, combining Relectrify’s world-leading BMS+Inverter cell-level control technology with battery packs repurposed from nine Nissan LEAF EVs to store 144 kWh of energy.  This industrial level of storage enables Colormaker to soak up excess solar power produced from their 100 kW solar array during the day.  The stored energy can then be fed back into the grid during evening peak, making the business more energy efficient.  Since installation of the 100 kW solar array, Colormaker has saved over 700 tonnes of GHG emmissions.

James Griffin MP, Mayor Sue Heins and Federal Member for Warringah Zali Steggall were on hand to celebrate the official launch of the ReVolve battery in April.

Colormaker receives Community Recognition Statement

On Monday 18th December, Colormaker Industries was presented with a Community Recognition Statememt by the Honourable James Griffin, MP, NSW State Member for Manly.

“Colormaker is one of the most ground-breaking businesses in my community and an exemplar helping to inspire other local businesses. In October an innovative ReVolve® battery – created by using recycled electric vehicle batteries – was switched on at Colormaker’s Brookvale factory and connected to the grid. This system enables Colormaker to use its solar array during the day, whilst feeding excess stored energy back into the grid overnight. Once again congratulations to Managing Director David Stuart and the team at Colormaker Industries on these fantastic achievements.” said Mr Griffin.

Maritime Museum unveils exciting mural by Brookvale artist Ink Hunter

Octopus mural by @inkhunter painted with LUXAPOOL Poolside & Paving non-slip paints.

The Australian National Maritime Museum has unveiled a commissioned mural from Brookvale artist InkHunter, painted with Colormaker’s LUXAPOOL Poolside & Paving non-slip paints in a range of beautiful blues.  Entitled Shallow Iridescence, the mural reflects the museum’s priority of ocean health and sustainability.

The artist Patrick Hunter advised, ‘The natural world is our home, it is where we came from, and we should be proud of how we leave it. My objective is to draw people in, with the different ways the artwork appears from different angles.  The blue-ringed octopus that is the central image is flaring up with nets in its tentacles. It is showing a warning for the direction we are heading with shark nets and overfishing. I was inspired by the work of Valerie Taylor. I want people of all ages to think about the ocean that surrounds us and be more aware of taking care of it.’ he said.  Learn more

Archibald Prize winning artist Blak Douglas

First Nations artist, Blak Douglas, was the winner of the 2022 Archibald Prize with his portrait Moby Dickens.  When I began painting, I consciously chose water-based paints as I felt them to be the least harmful to the environment.  I recall randomly stumbling upon the incredible colour range of PERMACRYLIK® at an inner city paint shop for the first time.  Gobsmacked by the pigments, what allured me most was the strength of the ochre based range which ideally suited me as a First Nations artist.” he said.
