The production program is composed today of the following products and product groups:  

  • car refinishing paints
  • industrial paints
  • house paints and varnishes
  • wall and facade paints
  • polyester putty
  • tinting systems

Single products evolve into innovative and complex systems, which cover all steps of a professional coating process. These lacquer and paint systems are permanently adapted to requirements of professional users and to the state of the art.

Investments, innovation and success are inextricably linked at MIPA. Only in 1996 the company moved into the main plant in Essenbach, one of the most modern paint factories in Europe.  Year in and year out, investments in machines, devices and premises increase the capacities and the quality of products.

The rapid increase in turnover during the last years results from market-oriented range of products, the continuous new product development and enhancements of existing products as well as from perfect product design which meets the users‘ needs concerning matters from correct packaging up to international markings.  In addition to our own products, which are sold under the registered trademarks mipa, Pro Mix and a lot of further brands, the MIPA SE sells merchandises of other manufacturers in Mipa retail stores.

The number of employees rose to more than tenfold in the period from 1988 to today: starting with 40 jobholders up to approximately 470 employees today.  This figure consists of employees in the administration, laboratories, production and warehousing in Essenbach, sales representatives as well as the employees in the retail stores. The companies of the Mipa Group are employing a staff of 1200 people worldwide.


The company’s exports account approximately 60% at the present. On the other hand 90% of raw materials are purchased in Federal Republic of Germany.
