About Us


For more than 130 years, Nippon Paint has been in the forefront as one of the world’s premier manufacturers of paint. The Company entered in to a strategic partnership with Silicone Coatings (Pvt) Ltd. of Sri Lanka in 2012 combining the technological knowhow and stability of a global giant together with the strong brand presence and local business acumen of a well-established Sri Lankan Company.


The Nippolac Group of Companies was established in 1979. Over the years, the Company has been specializing in the manufacturing of a wide range of decorative, industrial and automotive paints (interior/exterior), primers/undercoats, solvents, ancillaries, chemicals and wood care finishes under their brand ‘Nippolac’ - a household name in Sri Lanka.


Established in Tokyo by Mooteki Jujiro in 1881, ‘Nippon Paint’ pioneered the setting-up of the first paint plant in Japan. The Company grew rapidly and the Nippon Paint brand became synonymous throughout Japan as the best brand of paint available. In 1962, Nippon Paint took its first step toward globalization when it set up a joint venture in Singapore.


Today, Nippon Paint is the largest paint manufacturer in Asia and the parent NIPSEA Group manufactures and sells Nippon Paint products in 15 Asian countries. In terms of volumes, the Company manufactures over 1 billion liters of paints and coats annually - positioning NIPSEA Group as the preferred supplier of coating choice in Asia as well as among the top paint manufacturers in the world.


The Group currently has 30 Companies throughout Asia, 30 manufacturing facilities and a 15,000-strong workforce committed to offering trusted, professional service to all our valued customers. We strongly believe that our customers are the reason for our success over the last century with "Innovation, Service, Leadership" being our three main principles - principles that will very soon make Nippon Paint household brand across the globe.


This new partnership will provide a great opportunity for Sri Lankan consumers to experience innovative coating solutions from a global brand with advanced Japanese Technology and unparalleled quality. The new Company which will be called Nippon Paint Lanka (Pvt) Ltd. aims to make Nippon Paint the no. 1 paint and coatings brand in Sri Lanka.
