Meyer Paints PLC began as Hagemeyer Nigeria PLC in the early 1940s and was the original producer of Sigma paints and cosmetics. The company was officially incorporated on 20th May, 1960 and converted into a public company in 1979.
In 1994, Hagemeyer was bought over by Dunlop Nigeria PLC, which led to the change of both the corporate and brand names to DN Meyer PLC and Meyer Paints respectively. However, in July 2003, Dunlop Media divested its controlling shares from DN Meyer PLC to ACIMS Limited and DN Meyer PLC ceased to be a subsidiary of Dunlop Nigeria PLC.
About this same period, DN Meyer PLC acquired the Flooring Adhesives business of Dunlop PLC thereby extending the scope of its industrial operation from the production and marketing paints to the production and marketing of floor tiles and adhesives. The production of Floor Tiles is presently suspended pending the retooling of the factory.
In February 2010, a new set of core investors led by Citiprops Limited purchased the stake of ACIMS Limited in the company. The name was changed in August 2016 to Meyer PLC
Meyer PLC is the manufacturer and marketer of high quality paints including architectural paints, wood paints, auto refinishes, industrial and marine, road lining paints, roof coatings, tube coatings, HP coatings, and adhesives.
