Dulux Flagship Trade Centre

On the 19th of June, Trade Painters joined the Dulux trade team and the Dulux Group executive at the opening of the revamped flagship Dulux Trade Centre, Springvale in suburban Melbourne.

Professional Painters from all parts of our business took the opportunity to mingle with the Dulux team who have been working on planning, designing and constructing this new concept since early 2013. DTC Springvale is now a great place for trade painters to bring their clients and show them the extensive range of products to help them make the best choice possible for their project. 

This is a next generation store which features the latest in design, layout and machinery including:

–          New Service area counters allowing easier manual handling and better customer interaction

–          Store wide digital information displays with latest activities and promotions

–          Revamped professional business centre with iPad kiosk

–          A unique colour offering represented by the Dulux World of Colour wall

–          Modified store layout to reduce the manual handling of 15 litre pails in terms of the number of lifts and distance the pail travels during its “life” in store and

–          Australia’s first robotic tint line.

The unique Dulux World of Colour is one of the more dazzling features at the centre – but it’s not all about looking good! Painters and their clients can pull swatches off the wall to mix and match colours with products. Take home colour chips, which can take up a lot of wall space, have been conveniently tucked away into island benches so clients can easily see and lay out their preferred swatches.

In a first to Australia Dulux has commissioned a robotic tint line. The suppliers of this equipment are a global business and have commended the use of this technology as a global first where this type of robotic tinting facility working at the actual point where the product meets the customer. This type of equipment has previously been used only in manufacturing or large warehouse facilities. By bringing this type of technology forward to the point of sale, Dulux has step-changed paint distribution to the advantage of our customers, in terms of speed & accuracy, and our staff, in efficiency of operation, and overall safety within the store.

This store is something that we are proud of and will build on the already fantastic level of customer service that Dulux trade stores deliver to the painter.
