Expertise, creativity and excellence, all ‘Made in Moris’
If one had to list down the most active forerunners of the Made in Moris label, Mauvilac Industries would be among the first. Mauvilac brand was launched in 1964, expressing with other Mauritian pioneers the national aspirations towards economic independence and diversification, kick-starting Mauritius’ very own industrial revolution. A genuine ground-breaking spirit, sharp entrepreneurship and vision are what best define Roland Maurel Senior, the founder of Mauvilac Industries. He set creativity and excellence as the company’s fundamental values and driving these to fruition, turned out the 100% Mauritian paint into the national brand it is today.

Rising above the sole and superficial considerations of colour—and this where the brand’s cutting edge lies—Mauvilac products go way beyond the primary function of decorative coatings and constantly bring optimal added value to the end user.
Impeccable quality at the best prices for each and every one
Mauvilac is the first company to have been awarded the ISO 9001 Certification in 1995. Well before the Made in Moris label was ever even thought of—with the view to driving and acknowledging quality excellence in local production, several Mauvilac products had long been certified by the Mauritius Standards Bureau (MSB) up to MS3, M24, MS87 norms. Mauvilac products are developed targeting one and same objective, from basic top-notch range: equally ensure that all users be they small or big, individuals and professional alike obtain the best quality-price ratio from the product they buy.
