TAUBMANS paint brand by PPG adds colour to Speedcafe.com

MELBOURNE, April 9, 2019 – PPG today announced that the TAUBMANS® paint brand by PPG has joined forces with leading Australian motorsport news website Speedcafe.com as a Platinum Partner.

Taubmans has been painting, protecting and beautifying Australia’s most valued and loved assets for more than 110 years, including our homes, businesses, schools and hospitals.

David Nicholls, PPG commercial director, architectural coatings, Australia and New Zealand, said the partnership with Speedcafe.com reflects an enthusiasm to back initiatives that resonate with the Taubmans brand’s trade and retail customers.

“Motorsport has a terrific following and a strong history in Australia and New Zealand. Speedcafe.com has proven itself to be a leading source of motor racing news for fans throughout our region, as well as other parts of the world,” said Nicholls.

“Many Speecafe.com readers will no doubt be familiar with the Taubmans brand’s parent company, PPG, as the industry leader in automotive refinish products and systems.

“Many will have experienced Taubmans paints through products such as Endure, Living Proof Silk, Easycoat and our latest innovation, All Weather.

“We are looking forward to creating new opportunities for our customers to experience Taubmans paints through our Platinum Partnership with Speecafe.com, and ensure that Taubmans is the first choice for motorsport fans in Australia and New Zealand.”

Justin Murray, general manager of Speedcafe.com, welcomed the Taubmans brand to the Platinum Partner family.

“Taubmans is widely regarded as a leading Australian paint brand and is a perfect fit for Speedcafe.com,” said Murray.

“We want Speedcafe.com readers to experience everything that Taubmans paint has to offer - whether they are DIYs or painting professionals.

“It is the support of brands like Taubmans that allows Speedcafe.com to remain ‘First, Fast and Free’ for our readers. In return all we ask is that our loyal readers seriously consider the products of our partners when in the marketplace.”

The Taubmans paint brand joins a list of globally recognised brands as a Speedcafe.com Platinum Partner, including PIRTEK, Michelin, ARMOR ALL, Castrol EDGE, Preston Hire, Supercheap Auto, JobStop.com, TyrePlus and Mercedes-AMG.
