San Deco, Turkey’s first effect paint manufacturer with 100% percent domestic capital, commenced its activities in the chemical industry in 1965. The company produces interior and exterior paints and plaster but has a special focus on effect paint, which falls under the decorative segment in terms of R&D and production. This focus has been driven by the developed markets and the expectations of end consumers that guided the sector in the 90s.

San Deco has integrated all the innovations of developing technology into its production processes at its two facilities with a production capacity of 29 thousand tons, established on a total area of 11 thousand square meters in Kocaeli Dilovası and Algeria. Embracing the ‘Common Future’ approach by prioritizing human and environmental considerations in growth and production, San Deco has adhered to national and international high-level standards such as TSE and A+ in terms of human health and environmental protection.

Over five decades of dedicated expertise in the realm of effect paint, and a commitment to delivering design-driven innovation to the global paint industry and architectural sector through its ‘Architectural Paint’ concept, San Deco has emerged as the preeminent brand within the decorative paint industry. This distinction is underscored by its exceptional product portfolio and a formidable international footprint, encompassing a presence in 40 countries spanning 4 continents.

In addition to producing hobby paints, functional paints, and water-based interior and exterior paints, San Deco is actively collaborating with the San Deco Design Academy. This academy was established with the aim of fostering growth and employment within the Turkish paint industry. The academy plays a crucial role in advancing sector-specific training, nurturing skilled artisans, and fostering the development of innovative architects.
