Candy Paint Asia is a private company based in Selangor, Malaysia. We aren’t a subsidiary of an industrial conglomerate or owned by a global chemical company. In fact we have no external corporate shareholders. The company is wholly-owned by the directors themselves and a few of our friends who believe in what we do. That means we can paddle our own canoe without anyone telling us which way we should go. Being free of external influences has allowed us to re-engineer and innovate natural paint from beginning to end without any preconceived ideas.
Unlike the vast majority of paint brands we actually make our own paint with the formulation from Netherlands. We buy in the raw ingredients directly – so that we know exactly where they have come from and then carefully develop, create and blend all our own paint in our mill. And we only make paint, not lipstick or boxer-shorts as a side-line, so we can truly say we are a specialist. We also refuse to make paint for anyone else, so it’s only Candy Paint Asia if it says our name on our unique cardboard pots.
Just in case you were wondering we do not have a glamorous international head-quarter’s building. We do not have a fleet of company cars, a corporate yacht or helicopter! We do not have platinum credit cards with bulging corporate expense accounts. We do, however, make a great cup of tea and we invite you to pop in for one if you're passing.
We believe in simple, straight-forward and transparent and we intend to keep it that way!
David is the founder and now Chairman of the company. He connect with Candy Paint Asia company in Netherland and bring the formulation to Malaysia and start manufacturing here. He’s a pretty clever guy when it comes to natural chemistry! David’s background is in nano-chemical and work for PPG and Nippon for 10 years. If you ask him why he bring Candy Paint Asia to Asia, he’ll tell you because he wanted to have a paint that from cradle to grave did no harm, and before Candy Paint Asia there wasn’t one.
