Olympia Paints opened its doors in 1985 and was at that time primarily a paint contracting business servicing mainly government projects. The manufacturing component of the business was acquired in 1998 by the present-day CEO, Palash Moodley, a qualified and experienced Paint Chemist. The ability to manufacture its own product, specifically produced to cater to their customers’ unique needs, placed Olympia Paints in a distinct position in the marketplace. Now in its 20th year, Olympia Paints continues to provide paints which are of exceptionally high quality. The company continues to service the commercial industry as its core target market but has extended its product offering to produce smaller quantities for the household/domestic customer.
Our VISION is to be a world-class supplier of quality and innovative paints and coatings.
