Mixing a proud history with innovation
Established in 1935, Haymes Paint is one of Australia’s leading independent paint manufacturers. Based in Ballarat in South Australia, the family run business (now in the hands of the fourth generation of the Haymes family) is a true-blue Aussie success story with an annual turnover of just under $100 million and employing over 190 staff nationally.
The business is famous for its innovative product development and heritage colour ranges, which enables the restoration of historic Australian homes.
A very important factor for Haymes is the quality of their products and customer relationships. Haymes branded products aren't available in the big, corporate hardware stores as they only sell their products through independent retailers who they have a long-standing relationship with.
Haymes Paint began working with Pronto Software in 1999, utilising an end-to-end business management solution and in the four years that followed, Haymes Paint increased business by 60 per cent, doubling their turnover without increasing their headcount.
