About Us

"All you need to paint is a few tools, a little instruction and a vision in your mind"

- Bob Ross - 

Emblem Paints was founded way back in the mid 1970’s by an ex-employee of Plascon, his focus point, to manufacture and supply quality paint products based on the experience he gained within the Industry. 

Kruyt and family then bought the Mini Factory in 2007 after a thorough due diligence was done on both business and product. And so, a new page started for Emblem Paints ….

Emblem re-allocated its first Mini Factory to Oudtshoorn in the Western Cape and opened United Paints Retail Stores in Oudtshoorn, George and Mossel Bay. Emblem then expanded further to Gauteng in January 2018 with the opening of its 2nd Mini Factory in Centurion and Supply Depot in Hammanskraal.

Emblem Gauteng manufactures quality tested paint products and cleaning materials for Industrial, Commercial and Residential use. The focus points are to manufacture and supply in bulk direct to clients/projects such as newly build houses or buildings, development, rental and facilities companies and hardware stores.
