The Tasmanian Paint Shop is a second generation family business that has been producing quality paints and timber finishes in Tasmania since 1967.

When TasPaints was founded by Michael & Gillian Desmarchelier, there were several paint producers in the state. With the passage of time the others left leaving TasPaints as the only manufacturer of paints and surface coatings in Tasmania. Guardianship of the business also changed with the second generation of Desmarcheliers – Simon & Jo and their families.

Both Simon and Jo are hands on Directors and have over 40 years combined experience working in the daily operations of the business.

When founded, Michael & Gillian wanted several things for their business:

The Haymes Family

The Haymes family, born in Ballarat in 1935, their 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.

But just because they have history, don't think that they are stuck in their ways. They are driven to bring new and better products to market, ensuring you'll always have the best.  They have 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.

The Desmarcheliers and Haymes families live and breathe their 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 Paints choose to sell their products through independent retailers where they know the quality of personal service and advice matches the quality of their products.
