Illawarra Coatings was established in 1997 to manufacture and supply waterborne epoxy coating systems to the construction industry. Over the following years, the range was expanded to include solventfree epoxies, densifiers, primers and sealers.
By 2005, we had outgrown our first factory in Woonona just north of Wollongong. The search then began for land to build a custom facility. In 2007 we purchased land at Appin, south of Campbelltown and began the process of designing the new factory. Construction commenced in late 2007 with the facility opening for business in late 2008…just in time for the GFC.
At Illawarra Coatings we have continued to expand our product range by expending considerable research and development in Field Applied UV Cured coatings for concrete, timber and Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT). Recently, a range of waterborne, solventborne and solventfree polyurethanes for concrete and timber have been added to the range.
The business was started by, and is still 100% owned by the Owen family.
