CEO & CHAIRMAN Kansai Paint Pakistan
COO Kansai Paint Middle East

As the CEO of Kansai Paint Pakistan, I would like to thank our many clients for their loyalty and support. I believe that no business can grow because of their products alone: customer trust, an excellent team and good corporate values play an undeniable role in a company’s success and evolution. Kansai Paint Pakistan’s core values of respect and transparency have been derived from our Japanese heritage and have been diligently adopted by our team. These values can be witnessed in the company’s performance as it becomes a leading corporate brand and gains the trust of clients around the country.

Due to our belief in quality, hardwork and integrity, we have emerged as the undisputed market leader in the automotive paints industry in Pakistan. I am happy to note that the unique range of paints and coating solutions that Kansai Paint Pakistan offers has introduced a new trend in the consumer market. Traditionally, the understanding of paint in Pakistan was limited to its utility only as a decorative product. Kansai has taken the initiative to educate customers and raise their awareness on the functionality and properties of paints. We firmly believe in the customer’s right to information that will help them make informed choices. This initiative has earned us respect amongst our clientele, as well as given us a reputation of being a provider of solutions and peace of mind, rather than just paints.

Currently, I see us emerging as a market leader in supplying a wide range of industrial coating solutions in Pakistan. This is an exciting opportunity for us as this is the first time that such solutions are being used in the country. I know that it takes a great deal of trust and respect for any business to function and excel in the course of establishing a market, and it is even more vital when it comes to a foreign corporate entity entering a new market.

Kansai Paint aims to continue delivering quality products and solutions to the citizens of Pakistan.

I thank our partners, our team and our clients for their continued support as we grow and evolve.

100 Years of Kansai

Kansai Paints was founded in 1918 by Katsujiro Iwai, and its first plant was based along the banks of Kanzaki River, a major port of export and an area of paint consumption. In its 100 years of history, the firm has grown from a tiny paint manufacturer into a global company based on three pillars; automobiles, construction, and industry. Kansai oers a broad range of coating solutions to various segments and markets and it divides its business into Automotive, Industrial, Decorative, Marine and Protective segments. In reaching its 100th year milestone, Kansai has demonstrated resilience through the World War II years when its factories were burned down during the air raids. With teamwork and entrepreneurial mindset, Kansai achieved significant progress through innovation, development of new technology and globalisation along with overseas expansion of domestic Japanese automobile manufacturers. Today, it is the leading supplier of automotive coatings to automotive manufacturers worldwide. The company’s mission statement is to “leverage superior technology to contribute to our Customers and Society, in a sustainable manner, with innovative Products and Services, through a competent workforce, built on a culture of Customer Focus, Integrity and Respect to our Stakeholders” and we believe that Pakistan has an important role to play in achieving our collective mission.

To become a trusted paint manufacturer crossing national boundaries, Kansai Paints has established joint ventures in Europe, US, Southeast Asia, India and China and other emerging markets. In Pakistan, Kansai embodies founder Katsujiro Iwai’s valued spirit of “leading through virtue rather than speech”, and has introduced world class coating solutions to local market and in turn opened new avenues for global investment in the country. Kansai has made significant contribution to regional development projects, especially in projects of China Pakistan Economic Corridor(CPEC).
