In 2006 the formation of NB Coatings began a new chapter in the long history shared by Bee Chemical and Nippon Paint Company. These two innovative companies had successfully partnered for more than fifty years with several joint ventures across the globe. Under the ownership of Nippon Paint, NB Coatings has been able to grow as the market leader for automotive paint-on-plastic and to enhance its ability to compete on a global basis to meet the ever-changing needs of OEMs and Tiers.

From our corporate and manufacturing headquarters in Lansing, IL, we are in a central location to supply our main customers located in the U.S., Canada and Mexico as well as meet the needs of our global customers across the globe.
With global best-practices developed and shared amongst Nippon Paint’s various locations, we at NB Coatings continuously challenge ourselves to improve our technologies, processes, and quality systems as we build a stronger future together with our customers.

Most importantly, we are able to do this because of the strong teamwork, commitment, and dedication of our employees who are main reason NB Coatings has been so successful over the years. It is our goal to develop our people to be the best that they can be and it is our dedication to team which makes us strong and allows us to remain on the path to be the best company that we can be.
