The Nova Paints Club is an industry group consisting of the world’s leading independent paint manufacturers. It was founded in 1983 by forward thinking paint companies looking for an innovative way to compete against the largest multinationals. For over 30 years, Nova members have worked together, sharing their knowledge, insight and resources in a spirit of friendship and cooperation. Thanks to this innovative approach, Nova companies have been able to develop more exciting products and provide better service and support to their customers.
KRAFT PAINTS became a Nova member by being one of the leaders in the coatings industry in Greece and the Balkans. Nova members are major brands, have cutting-edge technologies and national and international reputations for excellence.
Nova covers the globe. Our members are based in North and South America, Europe and Asia, with operations in every continent. Taken together, the scale of our Nova companies is remarkable:
- Turnover close to 3 billion US dollars
- More than 8,000 employees
- 51 worldwide manufacturing sites
- Over 600 of the workforce working in research and development
- Purchasing power of over 1.3 billion US dollars on direct supplies of main line components
- A raw material and supplier database of more than 1,600 quality suppliers
This huge reach is at the heart of Nova’s success. Our members don’t overlap in terms of markets, so they can share information in a positive, non-competitive environment. This approach makes the most of our members’ strengths to deliver real benefits to customers around the world.
Sharing is at the heart of Nova’s philosophy. Our success is based on the openness, honesty and integrity that all Nova members embrace. Members work together on business improvement projects as diverse as color mixing schemes, software for production planning, raw material purchases and quality systems.
But the Nova approach doesn’t end there. Our members are all leaders in responsible care and share information and knowledge on health, safety and ecology issues. These can range from improved training to reduce accidents and clearer labels for customers, to developing paints that actively combat pollution and projects that reduce water and energy wastage.
Nova companies are at the forefront of customer support and service in our industry. Being a member of Nova is the clearest possible sign of a commitment to excellence in all aspects of paint and coatings manufacture. It’s a position our members celebrate with pride.
