About Haymes - Haymes Paint

Born in Ballarat in 1935, our family run business is now in the hands of the fourth generation of Haymes. Over the years, each member has taken care to hand on the commitment and passion for crafting quality products. After all, it is our name and reputation on the can.

Family Owned A

But just because we have history, don't think we're stuck in our ways. We're driven to bring new and better products to market, ensuring you'll always have the best. We've already made advances like paint that self-primes, blocks stains, trim paint that has the benefits of an enamel but is low odour and water based, plus low/zero VOC coatings that don't compromise on quality. Keep an eye out for even more new and improved products to come.

We live and breathe our values of individuality, independence and integrity. It's why you can be sure we'll never treat you like a number, never take shortcuts with the quality of our products or our service and why you'll find us at exclusive paint retailers.

Haymes branded products aren't available in the big, corporate hardware stores. We choose to sell our products through independent retailers where we know the quality of personal service and advice matches the quality of our products.
