About-Us : Derivan Pty Ltd

From stables to the world market

Derivan is an Australian-owned company that is firmly established as one of the leading suppliers of paint products for over 50 years. Starting as a small business operating out of a stable, Derivan has grown into a large company that supplies both Australian and overseas markets. Two friends, coincidentally both named Les, formed the company when they saw a need for paints that were suitable for Australian conditions.

Derivan continue to develop paints for our unique environment,  launching a range of Structure & Flow Acrylic colours based on shades and tones unique to Australia. Derivan’s commitment to nature is also reflected in our approach to manufacturing. The Derivan factory employs environmentally friendly processes and we continue to develop systems that minimise our carbon footprint in terms of energy, packaging and water. Australia has given Derivan Pty Ltd a lot. A sense of environmental responsibility is our way of keeping these opportunities open to future generations.
