Founded in 1936, Tambour is the largest Israeli paint manufacturer. The firm operates six production facilities in Israel for architectural paints, industrial paints, powder coatings, printing inks, acrylic emulsion, resins and other coatings. Production capacity is approximately 90 million liters per year. Tambour said it has been watching trends not only for color forecasting, but also for the research and development of new paint products, especially in the category of faux finishes and special effects. In light of the success of this methodology in the decorative market, Tambour decided to introduce it to the industrial market as well and created a unique cooperation with Klil Industries—the leading company in Israel for Aluminum framings.
