Australian Brushware Corporation Pty Ltd, a trading subsidiary of AHE, was founded on the manufacturing of quality, hand-crafted paint brushes. Our leading brand Monarch now dominates the wider painting and decorating category, with products extending to roller covers, silicones and adhesives. Cementing itself as a market leader in the Australian and New Zealand painting industries, Monarch is finding its way to hardware chains across the world. Now, due to recognition and a desire for the brand’s superior filament technology, our brushes have set the benchmark for quality around the globe.
