Strong roots provide stability, in business as in nature, enabling an enterprise to reach confidently upwards and send its branches wide. Merilux is such a free-standing, landmark enterprise, like a magnificent tree with branches spread across the Sydney metropolitan area. And, yes, we too owe much to our roots.
Business was in Frank Arlotta’s (pictured right) blood, but even he could not have foreseen that, 34 years after starting out a paint merchant with a store on Taverners Hill in Leichhardt, his Merilux initiative would command absolute respect as one of Sydney’s leading paint retailers.
It would be fair to say that across 4 generations, family has been heart and soul of our business success. And our customers are an essential part of that; we treat them almost like extended family.
“As family we appreciate the importance of the home. A house is more than just a physical structure; it can be a source of warmth and vitality. You actually draw strength from the place you live. It makes sense when you think about it. If you can make your home a place of beauty, of happiness and harmony, the effect spills over into your whole life. And because we understand that, and because we’re so committed to family, that’s exactly what we try to help our customers achieve.”
From the moment you walk through the door till the final coat of paint is applied, Merilux is involved. Our consultants guide you through the often stressful process of deciding the right colour combination. With a state-of-the-art computerised colour matching service, you are ensured precision. Trained sales staff are on hand to advise about paint and paper types and quantities. If you need a painter, we can assist here too. We’ll organise one of our qualified tradesman to come out and give you a free quote. We even handle delivery to anywhere in the Sydney metropolitan area.
