Resene have over 55 company-owned ColorShops and 40 resellers and stockists around New Zealand, manned by over 500 staff.
Originally the company was named Stipplecote Products Ltd and manufactured cement-based paint under the brand name Stipplecote. In 1951, Resene launched the first waterborne paint in New Zealand under the brand name Resene (derived from the word resin).
Steady demand for waterborne products over the intervening years led to the need for increased factory space. In 1962, the company moved premises from Kaiwharawhara, in Wellington, to Seaview where the company remained for 30 years before moving to its expansive plant in Lower Hutt.
In the mid 70s the company changed its name to Resene Paints Ltd.
As a determined competitor of the international paint giants in the New Zealand market, voracious investment appetite has given impetus to the company's growth.
Resene products extend through a full range of paint and specialist coatings for residential and commercial buildings, marine, heavy industrial, road marking, automotive and agricultural use.
Wholly-owned subsidiaries of Resene Paints Limited are Resene Paints (Australia) Limited with operations in Sydney and the Gold Coast; Resene Paints (Fiji) Limited in Suva, Altex Coatings Limited in Tauranga and Resene Automotive and Performance Coatings Limited.
