Shave Paint & Décor

About Us

The earliest store was located in West Street, Durban when George Codner opened a Paint, Wallpaper, Glass & China shop in 412 West Street, Durban in 1910, trading as G.C. Shave. Jack & Arthur, his two sons, joined him after World War I, after having served in the South African Infantry. G. C. Shave grew the business from importing paint, glass & wallpaper.
With a shop in Prince Edward Street, they established paint factories in Bellair & later at Jacobs. The grandsons, two from each son Jack and Arthur, expanded into the manufacturing of Decorative, Industrial, Refinish & Automotive Paints with branches and stores in most leading cities and towns in the country.
