Kiwis Name Dulux the Most Trusted Brand of Paint

AUGUST 1, 2011

From Cape Reinga to Bluff - Kiwis Name Dulux the Most Trusted Brand of Paint

Leading New Zealand paint manufacturer, Dulux, has received the ultimate seal of approval from New Zealand consumers, with the Wellington based paint company named as the country’s most trusted paint brand in the annual Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand Survey.

Now in its seventh year, the independently commissioned Reader’s Digest trust survey polled a representative sample of more than 500 New Zealanders, asking them which New Zealand brands they trust most.

Some of the comments from New Zealanders who voted for Dulux in the survey included: “With four painters and a paperhanger tradesman in the family – believe me I know the only brand to buy is Dulux,” and “Dulux has a great brand, longevity, quality products, great advertising. You can trust this brand”.

Julia Myers, General Manager of Dulux New Zealand, said Dulux was incredibly proud to be recognised as New Zealand’s most trusted paint brand. She said trust was a key factor in determining paint product selection.

“People need to know that the paint they purchase will not only look great, but will stand the test of time, making their homes and business better places to live and work for years to come. It’s heartening to know that New Zealanders trust Dulux to deliver that.”

Myers attributed Dulux’s success to an unfaltering commitment to providing consumers with quality, long lasting products that deliver exactly what they promise.

“At Dulux, we continually strive to provide New Zealand consumers with the most innovative, reliable and hardwearing paint products for their homes and businesses. We pride ourselves on being a quality brand that delivers on all of its promises, and will work hard to continue to deliver innovative, market leading products that New Zealanders can trust.”

Dulux has been part of the New Zealand landscape for more than 70 years and the company works hard to provide guarantees and assurances that products will be long lasting. For example, Dulux Wash & Wear Kitchen & Bathroom is guaranteed for seven years against mould regrowth, while Dulux Weathershield X10 exterior paint provides a guarantee that it will not flake, peel or blister for as long as a person is living in their house.

The full results of the Reader Digest Most Trusted Brand Survey can be found in the latest issue of New Zealand Reader’s Digest, which is on sale now.
