Asia Enterprise Brand Awards (AEBA) is a premier awards platform in Asia which aims to recognise successful local and foreign brands and accelerate the growth of up-and-coming brands in the region. AEBA is envisioned to provide a nationwide platform for their award winning brands to achieve greater credibility, visibility, and ultimately retain talent, customer loyalty and enduring success in all countries where they operate.
Nippon Paint, which has been ranked among the world’s premier manufacturers of paint for more than 130 years, was presented with the ‘Asian Brand Heritage Award’ for 2015 at this glittering event, by a panel of distinguished judges comprising business leaders, professionals and academic experts in their respective fields.
This award further affirms Nippon Paint’s position as the largest paint manufacturer in Asia, along with its parent company NIPSEA Group, who manufacture and sell Nippon Paint products in 15 Asian countries. In terms of volumes, the Company manufactures over one billion litres of paints and coatings annually – positioning NIPSEA Group as the preferred supplier of coating choice in Asia as well as among the top paint manufacturers in the world.
Nippon Paint, which has been in Sri Lanka for over 30 years has gained renown as ‘The Paint Expert’, along with a growing market share, with its superior Japanese technology across a range of decorative, industrial and automotive paints, primers/undercoats, solvents, ancillaries, chemicals and wood care finishes under their brand ‘Nippolac’ – a household name in Sri Lanka. The company also prides itself in its commitment to providing sustainable and environmentally friendly coating solutions.
Winning awards is something that Nippon Paint has learned to take it its stride. Asia Pacific Coatings Journal (APCJ), which has been reviewing and ranking the ‘Top 25 Paint Manufacturers in Asia’ recently ranked NIPSEA Group, better known as Nippon Paint, as the No. 1 among the Top 25. Nippon Paint has also won a Green award, becoming the first and only Sri Lankan paint manufacturer to be awarded the prestigious ‘CIOB Green Mark’ award, an equivalent to a gold standard, for two of the company’s new paints - the 3 in 1 Medifresh and Weatherbond Algaeguard.
