PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Do you know “KANSAI PAINT“?
It is the leading paint company in Japan!

First of all, I am very grateful and happy to become a member of KANSAI PAINT PHILIPPINES,
INC. or KPPI, even more so as I take over the leadership of this dynamic company.

When I took hold of the reins of KPPI, I was aware of the challenge to build awareness of our
brand, as well as promote the benefits of our products to the Philippine market. Through this
website, I hope that you could learn more about Kansai Paints and why it has been a leader in
Japan’s paint industry for over a hundred years.

In the Philippines, our main strengths are product quality and strong technical support, which
we have established in the automobile and motorcycle industries. While we continuously work
on improving our established businesses, we are also working hard to build an equally strong
hold on the protective and decorative markets by offering unique products that answer to the
specific needs of our valued users. For example, we have the Ales Shiquy Indoor Paint that
eliminates odor and detoxifies the air, and the Ales Cool High Solar Roof Reflectant Paint that
decreases rooftop temperature by as much as 20 degrees centigrade, resulting to up to 40%
reduction in aircon costs and CO2 emission. Soon, we are also hoping to introduce a paint that
could knock down mosquitoes inside our homes, especially the Aedes Aegypti mosquito which
carries the dreaded dengue virus.

Finally, I am excited to begin my journey as the new president of KPPI. I invite you to share this
journey with me by regularly navigating this website. I am hoping that as we work towards
building the Kansai Paint brand, more and more Filipinos will get to know why we say that
Kansai Paint is the paint with the Japanese Technology Designed to Last.

Domo arigato gozaimasu!

Akiyoshi Watanabe
President & General Manager
