Paint Maker

"I started when I was 16, so I’ve been here for so long, I’ve grown up with the Haymes family. The beauty of working with Haymes is that I’ve grown with the company over the last 38 years."



"When David Haymes comes in to do his presentations I think it really inspires people because he’s so passionate about the paint, it’s a nice feeling. "


Product Manager

"In my role I’m never doing the one thing. One day I might be in the lab testing paint, the next at a meeting with the advertising agency or producing marketing material."


Store Manager

"One thing I like is working in the industry itself, it’s a very relaxed industry. As for the other part of my job, working for Haymes, I like the way that they nurture their staff and bring them along in their careers — the way they promote from within."


Product & Development Technician

"I was taken on a tour of the factory on my first day and, of course, I’d come to the interview in a suit. Well, when I went up to the mezzanine floor of the factory, a bit of paint went splat right on my shirt. I never wore a suit to work again after that."



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.
