Excelsior Paints business has been in the hands of individuals and been a family business. The company has only had four owner/operators.

“There is nothing more satisfying than finding out that the business which you operate today, was one of the first business of its type to open its doors in the city. Finding, that the founding father of the business was also committed to a family-approach to business meant that the full involvement of the Lawson family continues a time-honoured tradition.

Quality Standards

 
Committed to Quality

As a member of the South African Paint Manufacturing Association (SAPMA), Excelsior Paints are made to international standards and exceed the standards required for many quality hallmarks awarded by standards authorities in different parts of the world. Backing this commitment to the highest of quality standards all products sold are subject to the standard Excelsior guarantees.

Our manufacturing process are subject to intense in-house scrutiny and the consistency of all our products is monitored in our own fully equipped laboratory supervised by an experienced team of paint technicians and quality control experts.

 

Samples of all our batches are retained for a minimum of 12 months (as per the requirements and recommendations by the South Africa Paint Manufacturing Association) to ensure that customer queries can be dealt with, and previous paint characteristics matched if this is required.

 

It is these attributes which have made us leaders in the independent paint producing business.

Tradition of Quality

Excelsior Paints business has been in the hands of individuals and been a family business. The company has only had four owner/operators.

“There is nothing more satisfying than finding out that the business which you operate today, was one of the first business of its type to open its doors in the city.

 

Finding, that the founding father of the business was also committed to a family-approach to business meant that the full

involvement of the Lawson family continues a time-honoured tradition.

“Excelsior has not changed its operating ethos since its founder Walter Rauner, arrived from Germany, and opened his doors for business in Main Road, Fordsburg, Johannesburg in 1937,” says Lawson.

Walter Rauner would undoubtedly be pleased to see that the business he started still cherished tradition and, although it had grown exponentially and adopted technologies, it is still driven by passion for products and customers.

“Although Excelsior today is automated and has its own paint technician and laboratory for quality control, we still have Rauner’s obsession on how our paints are made.

“Like our founder, we pride ourselves on being able to offer all our customers the range of products they need, with the advice and assistance they require.”
