The Good Paint

Medal Paints is known as The Good Paint. Good, because our paints won’t harm you or your family’s health. Good because we’re involved and do good in our communities. Good because we care about our impact on the planet. Good because we simplify your life with a wide range of products and accessories.

Good, because we offer good quality at good prices. And good, because we’re a proudly South African paint manufacturer – one of the largest in South Africa. But more than that, good because “good” is more than just an end product for us. For over 40 years, it’s been central to everything we do.

A good paint is an exceptional quality paint that is affordable to people from all walks of life, all while doing good in our community and being safe for the environment.

That’s what inspires our values.
