Last month saw the Powder Coating industry in shock as the news of the potential sale of the Dulux Group to Nippon Paints was announced. We were all wondering what would that mean to our industry. The AISF approached Dulux directly to ascertain what this means to us. We were provided with a copy of a Media Release provided to Dulux’s Shareholders, and it appears that both representatives from the Dulux Group and Nippon Paints unanimously agree that it will be “Business as usual” for Dulux and their subsidiary companies.
