Whether it’s a hospital requiring a speciality paint system, a painter needing a last-minute delivery to site, a retail customer wanting advice on colour schemes, or car enthusiast looking for the best refinish product, our reputation as the paint and colour specialists in CQ is so important to us. Now, as Inspirations Paint, we will continue to work tirelessly to maintain this status” finished Brett.
