In the past 56 years, Meyer Plc has undergone a series of corporate changes and re-branding. Formerly an offshoot of Hagemeyer Nigeria Limited, its name was rebranded to Meyer Paints in 1994, following Dunlop Nigeria’s acquisition of majority shares in the parent company.
By 2003, Dunlop Nigeria Plc had divested its majority shares in the parent company, meaning that Meyer Paints ceased to be its subsidiary. Its current name, Meyer Plc, came to being in 2010 after a new set of core investors led by Citiprops Limited acquired controlling shares in the company.
