International receives Australian Made certification

Yacht coatings brand International has been awarded Australian Made accreditation.

The brand’s Micron AP, Micron Extra 2, Micron One, Ultra 2, Trilux 33 and Primocon are the first of its yacht coatings products to receive the accreditation from the not-for-profit organisation.

The fouling control coatings and primer are produced at AkzoNobel’s Sunshine site in Melbourne.

The accreditation means the products met the criteria for quality, craftsmanship and production set out by the Australian Made Campaign and will be able to use the Australian Made logo which serves as a symbol of authenticity and quality for ethically sourced products originating from the country.

The Australian Made initiative, which launched in 1999, aims to promote the growth and sustainability of Australian manufacturers, growers, and producers.

“This decision underscores our commitment to supporting local industries and upholding stringent quality standards,” said Irina Atanasova, AkzoNobel’s yacht sales manager for Australia.

“As part of AkzoNobel, a global company with a strong local presence, we are dedicated to contributing to the growth and sustainability of Australian manufacturing.”

Ben Lazzaro, Australian Made Campaign chief executive, added: “Australian products are made to some of the highest standards in the world.

“They are trusted and known for their safety and quality. There is a huge appetite out there for Australian products, with country of origin increasingly playing an important part in purchasing decisions.”
