Our History


Rainbow Paint is one of the most oldest and dynamic paint manufacturers of Pakistan. Although we were into the paint segment since 1970s, we were formerly established in the year 1981 as an organization by M.Y. Shaikh, a well known entrepreneur and industrialist who had a passion with colours. We enjoy the privilege of being the 8th paint manufacturing facility to be awarded a licence to operate and produce paint in Pakistan.

Ever since our foundation as a small scale paint manufacturing facility in 1981, we had a vision to make high quality paint for the beautification of the country and to cope the needs in the most competitive economical prices, maintaining the quality and standard. Since paint is classified as a luxury article, we made it one of our agenda to provide paint to all class of society with high quality and economy.


We have come a long way by strictly adhering to our policies and now have become pioneers in the Pakistan paint market by introducing various revolutionary and groundbreaking products which has provided us edge over our competitors in terms of both quality and economy. We were the first manufacturer in Pakistan to launch and formulate “Semi Plastic Emulsion” which brought high quality paint to masses at cost-effective, reasonably priced package with a wide variety of shades. This product transformed the paint market and broke the White-Off White tone and provided consumers with choice of a wide variety of shade.

Among other things, Rainbow was also the first paint manufacturer to introduce the awe inspiring “Discovery Shades®”. The “Discovery shades®” are special quality shades that our R&D team have created in water based emulsion paint. These are economical adaptation of the shades from our oil based “silky smooth®” series. Do not confuse them with the regular water emulsion paint! ; They have a special price tag because they are more expensive to produce then the regular emulsion colours. Rainbow Paints was the first brand to introduce these shades in Pakistan; moreover we also have the largest collection of these special shades in Pakistan.
