Global Leadership, Innovation, Service, Trust and Quality.

The long history of NB Coatings has allowed it to thrive in its field and keep up with the constant changes in the automotive industry.


The origins of NB Coatings can be traced back to the founding of Bee Chemical in 1945 and Nippon Paint in 1881. Bee Chemical developed expertise in paint-on-plastics and formed a joint venture with Nippon Paint in Japan in 1971. Since then, the two companies have collaborated across the globe to serve our customers and build a solid foundation for leadership of the plastic coatings industry. Today, NB Coatings serves OEM and tier suppliers around the globe and is the leader in paint-on-plastics for both domestic and transplant OEMs in North America.
