QUESTION: The relationship between ICI and Dulux,
20 Dec 2004,
New South Wales Australia
I have come across a statement on your WWW-site to do with ceiling dust -- that's not the relevant point though. The statement was by Ms Elizabeth O'Brien and referred to the ICI Dulux site at Cabarita in Sydney.
For an article which I'm currently preparing for the "Australian Dictionary of Biography", I'm concerned to know the exact details of the relationship between ICI and Dulux (originally BALM Paints). Ms O'Brien's term suggests the link which I cannot exactly pin down. Can you advise, please?

Your subject is not by any chance John Hartley is it? Both myself and Fred Salome knew John Hartley personally and he was without a doubt the most knowledgeable man about paint in Australia. Fred and I and hundreds of other people attended his funeral in January 2001. John was a mentor to Fred and many other young industrial chemists. I'm just interested to know whether he is your subject.

If this fails to pin down the relationship between ICI and Dulux then you could ask the President of The LEAD Group, Fred Salome, in case he knows more about it. You can phone Fred at CTI Consultants in Sydney on 02 9736 3911 or email him Fred_Salome
