ICN assists Haymes Paint for supply to Ararat Prison
AEFIS Correctional Partnership has formally appointed Ballarat based company Haymes Paint as the preferred supplier to provide paint as well as the steel coating to Stage 1 of the $394 million Ararat Prison Redevelopment, located 200km west of Melbourne.
 
On 30 July 2008, it was announced the new prison would be built at Ararat as part of the progressive upgrade of Victoria's correctional system to provide services to meet future projected prisoner growth. 
 
The successful appointment of Haymes Paint for this 350 bed medium-security expansion has come as a direct result from ICN matching local industry capability with a business opportunity. 
 
Being a local manufacturer within the region, ICN’s Grampians Regional Manager Andrew Bradley identified an opportunity for Haymes Paint and encouraged them to attend a series of Industry Briefings dating back from 2010. Mr Bradley then continued to work with Haymes Paint in assisting them to make contact with the Architects as well as the Construction consortium. 
 
Established in 1935 Haymes Paint, is a wholly Australian company, with a reputation for quality, commitment to the environment as well as health and safety. Business Development Manager, Matt Haymes said, “ICN have been a fantastic support to Haymes Paint and we look forward to working with them on more projects to come.” 
 
The contract is worth $150,000 to the family owned and operated business and will and assist Haymes Paint in increasing their market share in the commercial market.
