The company has come a long way since its small beginning in 1942. Four friends who were willing to take on the world's biggest, most famous paint companies operating in India at that time set it up as a partnership firm. Over the course of 25 years, Asian Paints became a corporate force and India's leading paints company. Driven by its strong consumer-focus and innovative spirit, the company has been the market leader in paints since 1967.

Asian Paints is India’s leading paint company with a group turnover of Rs 170.85 billion.
