HistoryImg

Pacific Paint traces its origins to a tiny factory established in 1943 by the late Mr. S. Suriawinata in Jakarta’s bustling Pasar Senen district. In those days only a single brand of imported decorative paint was available on the local market and supplies were limited. (Attached is the picture of the first office) .

Over the years, the business grew slowly. And more sophisticated locally made equipment was added to the production process. By 1970, manufacturing operations became far more sophisticated and efficient. Pacific Paint also established our own can manufacturing operation…We employed chemists and lab technicians to monitor quality and ensure product consistency.

Today, Pacific Paint has been growing through 4 generations and has become one of the largest companies in the paint manufacturing industry with operations in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and China.

Pacific Paint is the only Indonesian company that produces a comprehensive range of paints, protective finishes and paint-related chemicals. Our products range from general household to commercial uses to specialized finishes for automotive, industrial, and marine applications. In addition, we also manufacture thinners, removers, lacquers, sealers and enamels.

Pacific Paint has a total workforce of more than 1000 employees. Besides having the most up to date Research and Development department, we also use manufacturing processes influenced from developed countries like America, Germany. Switzerland and Belgium.

We started out as the pioneer in the paint manufacturing business, and have continued to come up with innovative ways such as the implementation of tinting machines into stores to offer our customers better and easier access.

Utilization of computerized ACS and QUV technology has made the company unsurpassed in colour-matching its paint products through each successive production run.
