Welcome to the wonderful world of Classic Paints. We trust that the following background and information will be sufficiently informative to aid you in making the right decision to join our world.

The business, was started on 1 March 1985 as distributors for a large Cape Town based paint company. In 1995 it was decided that in order to be competitive against the major (and other minor) paint companies, the only road to follow was to manufacture our own personal brand of paint. The name ‘Classic Paints’ very soon grew into a household name within the Southern Cape area.

With the encouragement and help of one of the best paint chemists in the country at that time, it was decided to start small, using one 250lt machine with which we would make only one type of paint (an inexpensive PVA) and only 10 drums a week. This very quickly grew into a full-blown factory making everything from pure acrylics to varnishes and even specialised products such as Flame Retardant Enamels for the SA Navy! We also supplied the paint for the entire exterior of Somerset Hospital in Cape Town.

In January 2018, Classic Paints (Pty) Ltd obtained the intellectual property rights, the brand names and the original formulations and now continues the legacy.


We manufacture, distribute and sell a complete range of products such as high quality Sheen Acrylics, Textured paints, Enamels, Undercoats, Varnishes, Roadline Paint, Waterproofing Products, Anti-Fungal Paint.
