About us

Splash Coatings Africa is a Johannesburg based black, young and women co-owned company that specializes in the manufacturing, supply and application of architectural and infrastructure based premium coatings/paint.

The company was founded in 2017 by Bonga Masoka after acquiring a set of well researched and developed paint formulations – 35 years of continuous research and development, with the intention of finding a perfect balance between sustainability (environmentally friendliness), durability, excellent quality in finishes and affordability.

Growing up without a place to call home; and having promised to build his mother a house just before she passed on in 2012, Bonga saw the acquisition as an opportunity to live up to that promise.

He saw it as an opportunity to use paint/color as a means to create homes for others – hence the saying, painting houses into homes. “There’s a significant number of people living in houses, and just missing color to turn those houses into homes. People like my mom.”, says Bonga Masoka.

Inspired by the saying ‘men build houses and women build homes’, Bonga brought together a group of young women, referred to as Women of Color, to co-own the company with him and take a lead in directing and managing it. Including in manufacturing, marketing and sales and operations. He brought together women who understood that similar to each and everyone of them, every building has a story, and that color is a resource that could be utilized to bring about and/or enhance light in those stories.
