Our World Is Water: Heritage

Persuading the shipbuilders of Newcastle in the North East of England to buy their products for the very first time was not all that the Holzapfel brothers had on their minds when establishing their fledgling business in 1881. They were already considering the global potential for their products.

Now the recognised world market leader in yacht paint technology, we create innovative paint solutions to beautify, protect and enhance the performance of vessels in all lands and on all seas.

We continue to emulate the inventiveness and forward - thinking spirit of the Holzapfel brothers, and in true International Paint tradition we are totally committed to taking our products forward.
