In 1976, GNP Ltd. became a part of the Tata Forbes Group with Forbes Gokak acquiring a part of its foreign shareholdings. The company bolstered its strength in 1983 through technical collaborations with Kansai Paint Co. Ltd and Nihon Tokushu Toryo Co. Ltd, Japan.

In 1986, GNP became a joint venture of Tata Forbes and Kansai Paint Co. Ltd, with the Japanese multinational picking up a 36% stake held till then by the UK Partner Cookson.

Kansai Paint took over GNP in 2000 by acquiring the entire stake of Tata Forbes group. In 2006, the company’s name was changed to Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd.

KNPL started looking beyond India in the next decade as it acquired Nepal’s Nepal Shalimar Paints Pvt. Ltd. In 2012, it tied up with Sri Lanka’s Capital Holdings Maharaja Pvt. Ltd, and acquired RAK Paints, Bangladesh, in 2018.

The market capitalisation of Kansai Nerolac Ltd stood at nearly ₹ 25,000 crore, as of February 13, 2024. Kansai Nerolac share price has dropped nearly 20% in the last three years.
