Our Story

We’ve built a solid reputation with our customers by providing unrivalled service, superior and continually evolving products, and excellent pricing no matter what the economy. Covering the Eastern and Southern Cape and now Gauteng, we are a local company intent on building a relationship with every DIY enthusiast or big industry customer who walks through our doors.

There is no doubt that the management team’s hands-on approach when it comes to the day-to-day running of the business has contributed to the successful servicing of the DIY market, big and small contractors, the protective coatings, automotive and marine industries, and everything else in-between. When we say we coat your world – we mean it.

We can provide you with a superior application to suit any and all of your needs thanks to our proud association with leading brand suppliers Kansai Plascon, Jotun, and PPG Industries.

City Paint & Tool is also a proud member of the Paint Club; an association of loyal Plascon Decorative distributors who join forces to offer you, the customer, the best price, advice, and experience when buying Plascon Decorative products.

There are nine stores currently in operation – Port Elizabeth – North End (HO), Uitenhage, Port Elizabeth – Lorraine, Humansdorp, George, Plettenberg Bay, Knysna, East London and Midrand. Each store is manned by a handpicked team of experts in the business.
