Your No.1 Paint Brand

More than 50 Years of Experience

Azar Chemical Industries commenced business on the 9th of April 1968. It started producing quality paints for both local and export consumption. Azar Chemical Industries launched its first two products, AzarTex for Emulsion Paint and Azar Gloss for Oil Paint. The products were an instant success. Over the years, ACIL launched several products such as Carpenter’s Glue, Varnish, Tile Adhesives, and Wood Lacquer.

Savana Paints started in 1994, as everyone’s paint. The brand was founded to showcase that everyone deserves to celebrate living life in colour.


Shield Premium Paints started in 2007 as Azar felt that the market was lacking a premium paint. Shield Paints changed the perception of the quality of products that can be produced in Ghana.

Quality, durability, user-friendliness, and affordability have always been our trademark. Our R&D department continuously develops new products based on these principles, as well as in accordance with regulations and international standards. Having grown from a workforce of 6 to a workforce of over 500, we look forward to doing more business with individuals and contractors.

Our products can be found in the ECOWAS countries and in over 500 leading Hardware/Wholesale/Retail outlets throughout Ghana. We believe the key to our reputation as leaders in the provision of paint & color technology is our solid commitment to quality and excellence, and the motivation to continuously improve through research and development.
