The formation of NB Coatings begins a new chapter in the 40 year history of Bee Chemical and Nippon Paint Company. These two companies have partnered since the 1960s with joint ventures formed through the years in Japan, China, and North America. The single ownership will significantly enhance our ability to compete worldwide as each company contributes their unique strengths to provide:

  • A focus on automotive customers

Automotive paint is our primary business and our future path will expand our global automotive knowledge and enhance our global networking capabilities thereby helping our North American customers to serve an expanding OEM base. With global best practice insight, we will continually improve our technology, processes, and quality systems as we build a stronger future together.
