Nippon Paints has been richly rewarded for their path breaking innovations in bringing the best choices and options for paints to the Asian region by a leading industry publication titled, the Asia Pacific Coating Journal (APCJ). 

APCJ is the only dedicated coatings publication that covers the ASEAN region, from India to Australia. 

This bi-monthly journal in publication for 22 years offers the paint, ink and adhesives industry the latest  developments, regulatory updates, market trends and views with an established reputation for contributions from the leading Asian Paint Associations as well as market analysts, technical writers and general industry reporters living and working in the Asia Pacific region and reaches out to a readership of over 28,000 key decision makers across South East Asia, the Pacific Rim, Australia  and China. 

APCJ is published by The Coatings Group; apart from publishing the highly successful Polymers Paint Colour Journal (PPCJ) complements the industry by organising a number of successful coatings events around the world. APCJ is also supported by the Asia Coatings Congress, Asia Pacific Coatings Show and various other global events. 

APCJ has been reviewing and ranking the ‘Top 25 Paint Manufacturers in Asia’ for seven consecutive years and in APCJ’s recent review of the top companies in the Asia Pacific coatings business, NIPSEA Group, or better known as Nippon Paint has been ranked number 1 amidst the Top 25. 

Their parent company Nippon Paint South East Asia (NIPSEA) which operates in 14 Asian countries, has made it to the top of the list of best 25 paint companies in the Asian continent, edging out Asia’s other top paint manufacturers with their superior technology, innovative product range and its unbeatable Asian colour range. The paint manufacturing giant has also picked up an array of international environment awards for its Green practices making it the clear leader in Asia. 

Locally known as Nippon Paints, the company is in the forefront of innovating colour palettes to suit the Asian climate and taste in colours, with an amazing range of hues and textures.

Nippon Paints is the only Group to come up with this Asian colour palette which has introduced vibrant and tropical hues.

These new colours and textures are in high demand and popular in the Asian market and the company has struck a chord with their Asian clientele with their innovation in colours.

“We are happy and proud that our R and D in catering to a specific market, has fetched top marks for us placing us on the top of the list in a prestigious Paint Magazine,” said Nippon Paint Lanka Ltd. Managing Director Raja Hewabowala. “It is an encouragement for us to continue with this type of innovation,” he added. 

Always among the accolades and awards Nippon paints very recently 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 its commitment towards a sustainable future powered by green practices.

The award was for two of the company’s new paints – the 3-in-1 Medifresh and Weatherbond Algaeguard.

“We recognise the contribution of every member of our team towards this grand achievement and we offer our heartfelt gratitude to all our local and international stakeholders. We pledge to continue in our journey for the pursuit of manufacturing excellent in the years to come,” Hewabowala added.
