WJ Towell's relationship with Jotun (Norway) began in 1974 when the group established a joint venture manufacturing facility in Dubai (UAE). The success of that enterprise prompted the partners to extend their activities to Oman. In 1994, Jotun Oman became the first paint factory in the Middle East to acquire ISO 9001 certification.
The company has an annual installed capacity of 20 million liters of paint. Aside from its line of decorative paints, Jotun specializes in products adapted to harsh climates and leads the market for decorative paints, protective coatings and marine coatings. Jotun has continued high focus in Health, Safety and Environment related areas.

Riding on the crest of success, Jotun Paints has introduced the highly imaginative and innovative computerized color tinting system with more than 140 "Shop-in-Shop", Multicolor Centers in Oman, followed by "The Inspiration Centre" to showcase the most modern painting techniques and paint systems.
