We’re proud of our range of beautiful, high quality, highly durable paints and we want you to be just as proud of the spaces in which you use them.
Proud paints interior & exterior decorative paints are made using the latest, proven paint technology, to give durability, protection and lasting colour to a standard as high – or higher – than any other paint on the market, and to an environmental standard that exceeds current regulatory requirements.
Our paints are water-based, non-toxic, easy to apply and environmentally friendly. Sustainability and innovation go hand-in-hand, giving homeowners, DIY and trade professionals an entirely new choice of paint formulated to solve problems – not to paint over them.

Proud Paints are members of Guaranteed Irish, the not-for-profit business membership organisation representing businesses in Ireland since 1974.
Guaranteed Irish is the original symbol of provenance in business in Ireland. Our members span all sectors including pharmaceutical, healthcare, technology, construction, energy, professional services, tourism, food and drink, art and design, retail & more. We award the Guaranteed Irish symbol to indigenous and international companies operating in Ireland which provide quality jobs, support local communities and are committed to Irish provenance. When assessing an applicant for membership, we look at three core criteria; jobs, community & provenance.
Beginning as a campaign ran by the Irish Goods Council in December 1974, Guaranteed Irish became an independent non-profit organisation in 1984 and was launched by President Patrick Hillery. Over four decades, the Guaranteed Irish symbol has become one of the most recognised symbols in the country. In 2017, Guaranteed Irish was rebranded and relaunched by An Taoiseach, Mr. Enda Kenny, T.D., with the original logo from the campaign’s inception. Led by CEO, Brid O’Connell, and a new Board of Directors and team, the organisation repositioned by opening up membership to international companies operating in Ireland.
Our member companies now directly employ 120,000+ people in Ireland and generate a turnover of €11.2bn here. Globally, these companies generate a turnover of €29.7bn. Currently, 46% of the members export, primarily to the UK, US and mainland Europe.
With 1,900+ members and growing, we believe that we are #AllTogetherBetter.
