Pinchin Johnson & Associates Ltd. was a major supplier of paints for a large range of end-users during the first half of the 20th century. The company was part of the original FT 30 index.


The business was founded in 1834 as a producer of oils and turpentines in Silvertown in London. It grew by acquisition buying up competitors such as Red Hand and Docker Brothers. It had larger operations in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and India and smaller operations in the United States of America, Nigeria and the Far East.[1]

Demise of the business[edit]

In 1960 it was acquired by Courtaulds who in 1968 went about merging it with the International Paints business which they had acquired earlier in the year.[1]
