Since the establishment in 1982 Universal Paints has grown into one of the most highly trusted names in the paint industry through their reputable and licenced network of stores that sell Universal Products direct to the public. Universal Paints began as a family-owned business, and was acquired by Medu Capital in 2016. As a premium brand they supply and service a broad base of customers who understand the value of quality, longevity and expert service, and their target market includes DIY, contractors and the specification market (They serve an LSM of 7-10+).

In addition to the above they hold a membership with EST Africa buying group and their Operators enjoy automatic membership, and access additional suppliers for complimentary and allied products (they all benefit from group benefits, deals, discounts and rebates).

Universal Paints is a hybrid franchise model and a supply agreement governs the relationship between Operator and Factory.
