DULUX® Paints, a brand of PPG Architectural Coatings, was recently honoured by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) as its Partner of the Year. This prestigious award is presented to only one recipient annually and is voted on by regional CAA clubs. Dulux Paints was recognized for the benefits it provides to CAA members, joint promotional efforts and community engagement.

“This recognition is an incredible achievement for the entire Dulux team,” said Stephen Lowe, business development manager – corporate accounts, PPG Architectural Coatings. “We look forward to continuing to provide benefits to CAA members and exceeding expectations for all their painting needs.”

According to CAA members, Dulux Paints was chosen for the award due to the special member discounts, excellent service at store locations across Canada, clearly displayed CAA signage at stores and in advertisements, and involvement at community events such as CAA store openings.

The Dulux Paints brand’s partnership with CAA includes a 25 per cent discount on Dulux Paint products and a 10 per cent discount on tools and applicators for CAA members at more than 250 Dulux Paints and BETONEL® / Dulux Paints store locations across Canada.
