Company Profile

Linkup Early Days

Linkup Paint Supplies Limited was established more than 30 years ago in Hamilton servicing the greater Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions. Through strong brands and exceptional service Linkup Paints has grown to now four independantly owned branches. The Group has been formed to assist with purchasing power and advantages to provide our customers with the best possible products and services. Linkup Paints services the Automotive, Industrial, Marine, Wood Finishing and House Painting markets, providing coatings and associated products.

Linkup is a New Zealand based family owned and operated company. Allan and Joan Adamson founded the business July 1982 in Hamilton, and then the branch was opened Tauranga in 1990, the Wellington branch was opened in November 2011, and the Auckland branch was re-purchased from John Weyers in July 2018.

In October 2005, Jason & Kim Barry took up the opportunity to purchase and run Linkup Paints in Tauranga. Jason had worked for Linkup Paints in various roles for many years.
