The company Top Paints (Pty) Ltd was founded by Mr. W.F. Kriel in 1971. Experience gathered from working in paint laboratories paved the way into the paint industry.

The first paint manufactured was on a farm near Kliptown, south of Johannesburg. As the demand for paint grew, the owner moved to a small premise in Industria North.

During 1976 the present premise in Meyerton was built which was expanded during 2003. Since then the demand for factory space has increased and further expansions were completed during November 2005, 2008 and again in 2013.

We supply in the mining- and engineering industries and also provide paint for building contractors. Our capacity allows us to meet the demands of any customer. Top Paints retails directly to stockists.
