Kan Shetty acquired Omega International Coatings, a small industrial paint manufacturing company, in year 2000 and operated from a small warehouse at Chipping Norton.
Within two years, the company moved to its own purpose built factory at Mt Druitt. Mr. Shetty then acquired Hydrotech Ink, a screen printing ink company.
In 2007, Mr.Shetty took a major decision of acquiring Apco Coatings (a subsidiary of Asian Paints (India) Ltd), a decorative paint company. This acquisition ultimately enabled the company to get a foothold in the Australian Decorative commercial market in a big way particularly as a leading provider of road marking paints.
Kan Shetty’s vision and leadership is due to his belief that “believe in yourself and work hard towards your goal and success will follow.”
