Renowned for its fine art supplies, Pébéo was founded in 1919 by French chemist and artist, Claudius Chaveau. Originally a chemistry laboratory and major supplier of lead oxide to paint manufacturers throughout Europe, the company established its name by adding two ‘e’s to ‘pbO’, the chemical symbol for lead oxide.
Today, the Pébéo name remains synonymous with artist colours and mediums with a strong foundation in chemistry. Ongoing research, combining the talents of engineers and artists, means Pébéo continues to be recognised as one of the most creative companies within the paint industry.
