Heads or tails - Pacific Helmets Ltd

Pacific Helmets LtdAn unassuming Wanganui factory façade camouflages the extremely successful exporting company Pacific Helmets Ltd that lies within.

From manufacturing motorcycle helmets for the Australasian market in 1980, Pacific Helmets are now one of the world's leading suppliers of Fire and Rescue helmets through a network of 56 distributors in Australasia, Asia, USA and Europe. 95% of all product is exported, 100% is coated. Pacific Helmets have selected Resene Automotive and Performance Coating's Durepox epoxy primer and Acrythane 2K colour and clear coats as their preferred paint systems.

Working together, Resene have developed new coatings to meet Pacific Helmets' specifications, such as the recent literally glowing example - Phosglow - a photoluminous coating. With a combined commitment to innovation and a growing headcount across the world, heads we all win.
