Nippon Paint ranks fist in the categories of "interior paint" and "wood coating" of China-Brand Power Index

The China-Brand Power Index (C-BPI) is the most trusted brand-evaluating system used by consumers and companies. The China Brand Research Center conducted its 2013 C-BPI survey covering 30 cities nationwide over three months to examine brand awareness and loyalty among 13,500 people aged between 15 and 60. Covering 170 sectors, a total of 7,600 mainstream brands were included in the evaluation.

In the "household goods" category, Nippon Paint scored highly in brand awareness and brand loyalty among consumers. It also topped other companies in the "interior paint" and "wood coatings" categories.

Annual C-BPI results not only help consumers make better purchasing choices, but also assist enterprises by measuring brand competitiveness within their industries under the goal of bringing better products and services to consumers through continuous innovation and progress.

Aside from polling best among consumers for interior paint and wood coatings, Nippon Paint also came out on top in coating for architectural, auto, general industrial, heavy duty, coil and powder industries.

Landmark venues of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, 2010 Shanghai World Expo and 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games in addition to the new China Central Television Tower in Beijing's CBD all radiate with the protection of Nippon Paint.

Nippon Paint China, a part of the Nipsea Group, the Asia-Pacific region's largest paint manufacturer, can provide many kinds of coatings to meet the needs of businesses and individuals and win acclaim from clients.

In auto coatings, the first vehicle coating line in China that integrates PN1400 E-coat technology, IPP primerless technology and 2K third-generation clear-coat technology was put into use at Wuhan Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen Automobile, helping customers save costs and minimize their carbon footprint.
