Bates is one of the best coating factories in Australasia. They have taken panel finishes to the next level. They focus on durability and aesthetics because it’s the end consumer who will be the one judging. They gave very strict quality control and good process logs, and they inspect the panels very carefully. Highly competent staff run it who produce the same high quality each time.
