The Paint Depot was established in 1990 on the Gold Coast and has grown to become a major importer, wholesaler and distributor to the Automotive, Fleet & Industrial refinish industries. The Paint Depot distributes global brands ranging from Glasurit Paints, to a vast range of consumables including Roar Polishes, Sika, HB Body, Smirdex and many more.

In 2018 the SAPE Group expanded its Queensland presence with the acquisition of The Paint Depot, marking the latest milestone in evolution and growth for the group since opening in 1976.

With this new step, the SAPE Group reaffirms its commitment to growing and expanding its operations in Australia and investing in the Auto Collision Repair Industry.
