It has always been our mission at Harris Paints to provide Barbadian customers with paints that meet international quality standards and to customize our formulations uniquely to better withstand Caribbean climatic conditions. And more importantly, we take steps to prove it.
Our premium and most popular products are submitted periodically to an independent, international test laboratory (CRGI Inc), specializing in paint and coatings. Products are evaluated against regional and international competitors’ products. During evaluation products cannot be identified to eliminate any chance of bias. CRGI has over 60 years experience and is certified by leading accreditation agencies.
Tests are performed to evaluate the leading characteristics of paint products against all samples.
Results are analyzed and rated against products in the same category and showed that overall, on average Ulttima Plus Flat, Satin and Porch & Patio outperformed regional and international competitors.
For decades, Harris Paints has utilized the latest technology to produce more planet-friendly formulations. All Ulttima Plus emulsions have been awarded the Green Wise seal which certifies they do not contain specific chemicals determined to be harmful to humans or the environment. The highest safety rating and Green Wise Gold seal has been awarded to the Ulttima Plus Pure Interior Paint products. Green Wise certifications are recognized by the Sierra Club, one of the most enduring environmental organizations in the US with 3.8 million members.
In order to deliver customers the quality we promise, it is essential to have a framework for excellence and continual improvement throughout our operations. To that end our business processes are evaluated by the internationally recognized ISO organization for quality management standards and are ISO 9001: 2015 certified.
