About Motip



Founding MOTIP

Less than 60 years ago, Wout Post, the founder of MOTIP, started using paint in his father’s shed in Valkenburg, the Netherlands. He wanted to earn something extra as a student and decided to sell pots of paint. His interest in paint developed and he began to experiment with the mixing of pigments himself.


Colours for cars

The self-mixing of pigments went so well that, in addition to decorative paints, Post also started to focus on paints for motor vehicles. The pots of paint were exchanged for spray cans and small bottles. Easy to repair paint damage to your car. The name Post changed to MOTIP, which refers to the paint tip bottles for quick self-repairs to motor vehicles. The paint is now available in almost all the original colours of cars. 


Nothing you can't fix

The paint system conquered Europe and MOTIP expanded its product line-up with even more sprays for even more purposes. Whether you have damage to your car, your bike, want to maintain your vehicle or need paint in your workplace, MOTIP has everything to help you, from technical sprays, paint and care products. 

All you need is the same drive as the founder of MOTIP to do it yourself. Because you can remove that scratch, make your rims look new again, lubricate the chain of your bike and maintain machines. With us, it does not matter whether you are a professional or not: There’s nothing you can’t fix.
