The Aalto Story

The company was founded in Auckland and has since grown to become a leading provider of paint products in New Zealand.

Aalto Paint's commitment to high-quality products, combined with innovative and sustainable production methods, has made it a popular choice among both professional painters and DIY enthusiasts. The company's product range includes a wide variety of paints and coatings, including interior and exterior paints, stains, and varnishes, as well as specialised products for specific surfaces such as wood, metal, and concrete.

Throughout its history, Aalto Paint has been committed to sustainability and has been an early adopter of environmentally-friendly production methods. The company was one of the first in the industry to introduce water-based paints, which emit fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds) than traditional solvent-based paints. Additionally, Aalto Paint is dedicated to reducing waste and has implemented a number of recycling programs and initiatives to minimise its impact on the environment. These efforts have not only helped the company become more sustainable, but have also helped to establish Aalto Paint as a responsible and trustworthy brand for consumers who are looking for eco-friendly paint products.

The Science Behind the Paint

Our flagship range is the industry leader in the creation of beautiful, multi-pigmented paints.
Aalto Paints ultra premium range uses innovative formulations and the highest quality raw materials available to fulfil the needs of those with a discerning eye for colour and quality.

  • Premium powder compounds are imported, ranging in consistency from light to heavy.

  • These powders are mixed with water, creating a smooth, high quality mixture.

  • High grade imported resin is added to this mixture, creating a premium paint base.

  • Up to eleven colourants are added, for a unique multi-pigmented finish that is impossible to match.
