Master Painters Australia NSW Association Inc. is a not for profit industry association representing painting and decorating contractors and employers in NSW.
Since its foundation over 100 years ago, Master Painters Australia has been an independent representative for firms and individuals conducting business in the painting, decorating and sign writing trades. We do this by our involvement with numerous government consultative forums both nationally and at a state level.
The Association seeks to advance, encourage and recognise the highest standards of trade craftsmanship and ethical business practice in residential, strata, industrial commercial and historical projects. We do this by providing members and consumers with up-to-date information on a regular basis and also through our Awards for Excellence which is held annually and where we see the best of the best competing.
A member of Master Painters has a range of resources available to them by way of magazines, e-bulletins, industry consultants, updates resources, accredited and certified courses, including Lead Paint and Asbestos and Sustainable Painting Practices, for a list of professional courses. Click here
