Nippon Paint Singapore

Who We Are

Founded in 1962 as an affiliate of Nippon Paint Japan, Nippon Paint Singapore opened its first paint manufacturing facility in 1965. After a shift in majority ownership and corporate restructuring in 2020, Nippon Paint Singapore is now a fully-fledged member of Nippon Paint Holdings, the fourth largest paint manufacturer in the world, headquartered in Osaka, Japan.​ ​

In Singapore, we are in a unique position to offer a wide range of ‘global’ benefits and opportunities. The reach of our global resources is matched by the depth of our local knowledge and experience.​

In addition to our core business of paints and coatings, we manage and market the respected Australian brand Selleys, a market leader in sealants, adhesives and fillers. Over the last decade and a half, we have aggressively expanded into multiple new business channels, moving beyond paint and into building materials, sanitaryware, cleaning products and more. In every channel, we have rapidly earned credibility and won the confidence of our customers. ​

Our History

In 1955, Mr Goh Cheng Liang, founder of Nippon Paint (Singapore) Co Pte Ltd set up his first paint shop in Singapore and became the main local distributor of Nippon Paint. Over the next decade or so, Mr Goh built up a solid foundation for Nippon Paint in the paint industry. In 1965, Nippon Paint took a giant step forward and set up its first paint manufacturing plant in Singapore.

Since then, understanding our customers’ needs and providing them with the finest have become our forte. Through the years, we are able to offer creative and innovative solutions for our alliances, partners and customers by continuously leveraging on modern technology.

Today, the company’s core principles to serve our unique markets remain in consistently providing breakthrough paint solutions and high performance products. From our comprehensive selection of products for architectural, trade and general consumer use, we ensure that every product delivers its superior functions and yet remain environmental friendly.

Nippon Paint Singapore has already covered many of the country’s landscapes, and is well positioned to continue beautifying and protecting Singapore for many years to come.

Our Culture

The Lean for Growth (LFG) culture is what drives the NIPSEA Group as an organisation, and Nippon Paint Singapore as a company. It forms the heart of what we do and is the foundation of our belief that sustainable growth comes from doing the right thing.​
