National Paints is a third-generation business, built on a family’s entrepreneurial vision and values. Our story begins in 1948, when Faeq Ibrahim Sayegh opened a building materials shop on a bustling merchant street in Amman, Jordan. Later, recognizing a gap in the market for high-quality paint products, the Sayegh brothers were inspired to contribute to the growth of the paint industry. And so, National Paints was born in 1969 with a commitment to exceptional quality and superior service.
In 1977, Saleem Sayegh saw an opportunity in the United Arab Emirates, and opened a factory in Sharjah. The plant became the epicenter of National Paints’ journey of growth as it became the region’s biggest paints and coatings factory.
Today, National Paints products improve, protect and uplift projects and properties across 80 countries. Yet, we remain under family stewardship, and our approach is still built on Sayegh family values. We take pride in what we do and hold ourselves to exacting standards. We continuously strive towards exceptional customer service and are willing to go the extra mile to help customers find or customize the perfect product.
We’re never standing still. Every day, we invest in the capabilities, equipment, infrastructure, and people that keep us in the lead.
That’s why our Sharjah plant still holds the distinction of being the Middle East’s largest for paint products and related material — contributing to our annual tally of 500,000 tons of paint and related products every year.
We’re 16th by size in the European and Middle Eastern market and are ranked 38th in the list of the 100 largest paint and coatings producers. We’re also the largest paint consortium in the Middle East.
