Na­tional Paints was es­tab­lished in 1969 and has since striven to pro­vide prod­ucts that help make peo­ple’s lives more vi­brant and col­or­ful. Founded in Am­man, Jor­dan; the com­pany has con­tin­u­ously moved for­ward by cap­i­tal­iz­ing on all growth op­por­tu­ni­ties and im­prov­ing op­er­at­ing ef­fi­ciency in or­der to ex­pand their pres­ence on the world stage and strengthen their prod­uct port­fo­lio. One of the ma­jor com­pa­nies un­der the Sayegh Group, Na­tional Paints has gar­nered a rep­u­ta­tion for pro­duc­ing and dis­tribut­ing high-qual­ity paint prod­ucts and raw ma­te­ri­als.

For ma­rine and pro­tec­tive coat­ings, Na­tional Paints has a long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with Transocean coat­ings from the Nether­lands that dates back to 1988.

“We sup­ply our Transocean range of prod­ucts in­clud­ing anti-foul­ing, anti-cor­ro­sive and other paint coat­ings for ships and yachts, off­shore and on­shore rigs and for in­dus­trial in­stal­la­tions,” said Mr. Samer Sayegh, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor, Na­tional Paints,

The part­ner­ship has helped the com­pany sup­ply coat­ings and an­tifoul­ing for ships and yachts as well as coat­ings for off­shore in­stal­la­tions and in­dus­trial struc­tures and these

prod­ucts are widely rec­og­nized and used all around the globe. In 1959, a group of ma­rine paint man­u­fac­tur­ers from dif­fer­ent coun­tries joined to­gether with the ob­jec­tive of pool­ing their re­search and de­vel­op­ing re­sources to en­able coat­ings to be man­u­fac­tured to an iden­ti­cal for­mu­la­tion and qual­ity all over the world.

“We are the sup­plier of ma­rine paints to many es­teemed or­ga­ni­za­tions in this field in the UAE such as Pe­tro­leum, Con­struc­tion, Oil and Gas com­pa­nies and Ma­rine Ser­vices and Drilling com­pa­nies for on­shore and off­shore oil op­er­a­tions,” re­marked Mr. Sayegh

The in­dus­try stan­dards avail­able for cor­ro­sion pro­vide guide­lines for an­ti­cor­ro­sion de­sign dur­ing a ves­sel’s plan­ning and con­struc­tion stages, as well as pro­to­cols to fol­low for main­tain­ing cor­ro­sion pro­tec­tion sys­tems dur­ing the life of the ship. There are a num­ber of stan­dards used. For ex­am­ple, main­te­nance stan­dards for coat­ings cover ar­eas such as sur­face prepa­ra­tion, coat­ing ap­pli­ca­tion, coat­ing in­spec­tion, and how to de­ter­mine coat­ing de­te­ri­o­ra­tion. The stan­dards clar­ify what is re­quired and make it pos­si­ble for all par­ties in­volved with ship con­struc­tion and main­te­nance to have a com­pa­ra­ble un­der­stand­ing of the re­quire­ments.

Ex­ten­sive re­search and de­vel­op­ment work have pro­vided Na­tional Paints and Transocean Coat­ings with se­ries of prod­ucts which pro­fes­sion­als ac­knowl­edge to be com­plete and of high qual­ity. Man­u­fac­tur­ing takes place us­ing strin­gent for­mu­la­tions; whether a prod­uct is sup­plied in Europe, Asia, Amer­ica, Africa or Aus­tralia, the qual­ity is guar­an­teed iden­ti­cal.

It has now grown as the third largest man­u­fac­turer of ma­rine paints in the world, made up of over thirty-mem­ber com­pa­nies and over one hun­dred and fifty ser­vice points. With the mem­ber com­pa­nies spread over al­most all the con­ti­nents, Transocean en­joys a wide reach and is able to sup­ply the ship­ping com­pa­nies wher­ever their ves­sels go.

Ranked num­ber 31 in global sales; num­ber 13 among the top 25 coun­tries in Europe and num­ber one in the Mid­dle East and the Arab world in both sales and pro­duc­tion – Na­tional Paints pro­vide var­i­ous dec­o­ra­tive, pro­tec­tive, au­to­mo­tive, ma­rine, pow­der and wood­care paints. Widely re­garded as the re­gion’s largest paint con­sor­tium, the com­pany has an an­nual pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity of over 450,000 tons with an es­ti­mated USD 250 mil­lion in an­nual sales. They also ex­port to 80 coun­tries world­wide and are rapidly ex­pand­ing their global pres­ence.

The un­prece­dented de­vel­op­ment of the UAE since its for­ma­tion in 1971 has re­sulted in a colos­sal surge in the con­struc­tion in­dus­try. As such, the coun­try now boasts an in­fra­struc­ture to ri­val that of any of the world’s de­vel­oped coun­tries and with so much con­struc­tion and build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties tak­ing place – there has been a mas­sive de­mand for paint(s). Na­tional Paints has de­vel­oped along­side the UAE and evolved into a ma­jor player in the global mar­ket. One of their most in-de­mand and pop­u­lar prod­ucts is their col­lec­tion of ma­rine paint.

Mr Sayegh con­cluded by say­ing, “Our mis­sion is to main­tain dis­tinct re­la­tions with our clients and work with them in a team spirit in or­der to en­sure com­plete cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion by pro­vid­ing them with high qual­ity prod­ucts us­ing up-to-date sci­en­tific meth­ods and tech­niques based on the lat­est re­search and de­vel­op­ment in the field.”
