The Olarenshaw Family Heritage

The Olarenshaw family has been involved in the paint industry since the 1930s. Norm Olarenshaw taught painting at the College of Decoration which is now known as RMIT in Melbourne. Partnering with his son, Ron Olarenshaw, they started a business focusing on painting the newly developed area of Sunshine where they painted the new Massey Ferguson complex, as well as the majority of the suburb. In 1957, Norm and Ron opened the retail division, Olarenshaw’s Paint Centre, which is where Ron’s son, Darren, started working from the age of 15. Taking over the business 15 years later, it became a landmark which is still in operation today. Darren and his son Michael then branched out to establish Olarenshaw & Co Painting, continuing the family heritage.
