Our History

When Livhu Tshipuke's family paint manufacturing business collapsed shortly after the passing of his father who owned the establishment, he dedicated his time to making a name for himself in the same industry.

This would be a fitting tribute to a man who taught himself the skill and later transferred the knowledge to his son. In 1999, his dad Patrick became among the first black people to manufacture decorative and industrial paints in South Africa. They founded a paint brand in Shayandima Industrial , Limpopo In 2011, Patrick passed on but his vision stayed alive. Inspired by his parents, he became passionate about building a paint brand. In 2017, he started Pat and Jul Paints. The business in 2021 changed its name to APCoat.

Through innovation and technology, it produces quality coatings, best decorative coatings and performance coatings designed to meet customer needs and customer satisfaction.
