Created in 1999 on the site of the former SIPECO (Société Industrielle des Peintures de Conakry), the Matoto Painting factory is the first factory of TOPAZ MULTI-INDUSTRIES SA. This factory specializes in the production of paints and coatings for construction, public works, industries, and mines.
The range of paints we manufacture is quite diverse. Some are water-based such as interior and exterior paints, while others are made from organic solvents such as oil paints and rust removers. Our paints are intended for both domestic and industrial uses. We can also manufacture special paints according to the specific needs of our customers.
With 67 permanent Guinean and Indian employees, our task force comprises chemical engineers, laboratory assistants, skilled and unskilled workers.Read More
Initially, the factory started with the available facilities of the ex-SIPECO. But very quickly, all the equipment was entirely replaced by new, latest-generation machines featuring cutting-edge technology.Read More
The plant produces around 60 tonnes per day, or over 15,000 tonnes per year, and has a storage capacity of around 100 tonnes. With this production capacity, we can cover the entire domestic demand for paints and export them to our sub-regions.Read More
The plant has a state-of-the-art laboratory that plays two roles at the same time. First of all, we control the quality of all products before they are released for consumption. Also, it serves as a research and development laboratory for the design of new products to be put on the market.
A survey of the various paints sold on Guinean territory (manufactured locally or imported), conducted by an independent organization called CARBONE indicated that our paints were the best in the local market.
All solid or pasty waste, such as mastic, mud, dried glue, is collected, treated, and recycled in the production process. The water from the production of water-based products and the machine-washed water is treated by an osmosis system and reused for watering our gardens. Waste from solvents is collected and recycled in the production process.
