Our Evolution.



Founded under the name of
‘De Havilland Paint Products’, the company made its humble start in the industry with Signage being the predominant market the company
was involved in.


The company was purchased by Serge Sola and David Decorte, giving the name ‘BC Coatings’ to the company.
The company was located in Botany, NSW where the business grew with the introduction of our small order Colour Matching service.


BC Coatings developed an interior grade polyurethane called UT900, predominantly for the Kitchen Industry. The business continued to grow with the introduction of this product with many new customers.


Our Vetrocolor Glass Coating System took off and fueled continuous growth within the company along with various contracts with overseas companies.


BC Coatings continues to improve and refine our processes and products to ensure customer satisfaction which is atop of our priority list.
Diversification into new markets such as Auto refinish, protective coatings and concrete protection are currently being pursued.


Space constraints once more resulted in various solutions being considered with the expansion of the Smithfield site finally being abandoned in favour of a move to Ingleburn, NSW in January 2018.
The factory is 4 times larger, on five times the land size as Smithfield.


Environmentally Sound
BC Coatings created and perfected our first waterborne products, introducing our ‘Aquacolor’ range. Aquacolor has low VOC content and is recognised as being environmentally sound.


The company by this stage had outgrown the Botany premises and moved to a larger factory in Smithfield, NSW.
This period was one of rapid growth in all our traditional markets which saw turnover increase from $2M to $20M during our stay.

Our products have proven themselves time & time again.
