Norglass Paints and Specialty Finishes

The Company

Norglass was incorporated in May 1979 in Sydney, and current ownership acquired in May 1982. It is 100% family owned by Les Baker, Janice Baker and Brett Mould.


Les Baker has over 50 years experience in the paint industry and 38 years lecturing in surface coatings throughout Australasia. All senior staff are qualified in surface coatings.

Quality Control

Every product manufactured by Norglass undergoes a rigid triple-check series of evaluations to ensure all raw materials are to their highest standard before being used.

The triple-check process is carried throughout until the manufactured product is placed on the warehouse shelves for sale.

This fail safe procedure has ensured that not one product has left the premises outside of its design specification in 25 years.

About Norglass Paints

Norglass has a policy of commitment to producing the “best of the best” in products and services… without compromise.
Director & Founder, Les Baker

Norglass is a specialist manufacturer of highest quality paints and surface coatings.

Each raw material is selected for its performance characteristics, not the price.

The management philosophies decree that quality is the path to success – not quantity.

This is endorsed by market acceptance nationally in one of the harshest and most extreme climates on earth. From Albany in Western Australia to Zillmere in Queensland, Norglass products are out there performing, year after year. From multi-million dollar luxury yachts in the Philippines to outriggers in Lae, Papua New Guinea the reputation continues to expand.
