a world of colour and coatings

company

Kaizen Paint Middle East (KPME) was born out of Kansai Paint Group. We have a proud Japanese heritage of 100 years and a rich history of innovation in the paint industry, and our core business of performance coatings and special finishes.

Our continued commitment to technological innovation is exemplified by the degree of advanced control laboratories. Every paint batch undergoes several stringent quality control tests to ensure it meets customer benchmarks, local regulatory compliance and global manufacturing standards.

The company has five strategically located and wholly owned country subsidiaries of KPME serving the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Our four world-class production facilities have a cumulative capacity of 100,000 tonnes per annum.

It is our extraordinary people who are our greatest asset—we say it often and with good reason. The synergy of our team, research, technology and partnerships is what has made our leadership position possible.

group CEO’s welcome

It is a great privilege for me to welcome you to the Kaizen Paint website and to provide a window to our world. Kaizen Paint was established in 2008. It has carved a niche in the paint industry through technical innovation, and delivering exceptional quality paint and coatings products.

Our vision is to continuously strive to become the most sought-after provider of coatings solutions in all the markets where we operate. And, our growth philosophy is to participate in markets where Kaizen can add value for all paint consumers—in a climate conscious manner.

We have taken a two-pronged approach to corporate strategy. The first element being expansion of our geographic footprint—we think of it as strategically planting several small trees and nurturing their growth. The second element being growth within the individual markets or segments that we serve through providing high quality products and services.

As a result, during our formative years, Kaizen swiftly reached a position where we were able to scale multiple businesses and successfully expand our footprint to serve the MENA region. Today we are present in Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Qatar.

It is our conviction, and our experience, that ultimately business is about people. At the heart of Kaizen Paint’s success is our team, our customers, and our vendors. It is they who have collectively brought forth bold ideas—driving us to innovate. 

Our Kaizen team members work tirelessly to inspire and delight our customers by providing an exceptional experience. Through their determined support and dedication, Kaizen continues to hold and grow its market positions.
