Concept

Take a moment and look around your town, your home.
Does anything catch your eye?
Nearly everything around us is painted. From cars and transport to bridges, roads and buildings.
From cans and home appliances to metal, wood, plastic and even concrete.
Paint is a material we all know that protects, colors, and opens up all kinds of new possibilities,
and without paint, our surroundings would soon start to look old and lifeless.
But, as paints evolve, our worlds change with them,
becoming more vibrant, more colorful places and a culture of bright, enjoyable lifestyles opens up to us when painting is easy.

We are Nippon Paint Group –
world-class paint innovators with the drive and vision to grow beyond being Asia’s number one to become a global leader.

With PAINT.WONDER as our motto, we are pushing the evolution of paints and paint technologies into the future,
and opening up the wonderful possibilities these can bring to the world.
