Valspar, Hirshfield Join Forces on Professional Wood Coatings

November 5, 2010

Hirshfield will distribute Valspar's complete line of wood coatings.

Hirshfield’s is now the distributor of the complete line of Valspar wood coatings, including stains, varnishes, lacquers, topcoats and other finishing products. The new distribution agreement marks the first time the Minnesota-based corporations have partnered to provide wood finishing products to professional woodworkers, cabinetmakers and millwork producers. Ten Hirshfield locations in Minnesota—Alexandria, Baxter, Savage, St. Cloud, Minneapolis, Rochester, Blaine, Monticello, Hopkins-Lathrop and Bemidji—and two in North Dakota—Fargo and Bismarck—will provide customer support along with the complete line of Valspar wood coatings. The new distribution agreement pairs two companies that each have long traditions of providing residential and commercial products. Hirshfield's is a fourth generation, family-owned company that has been in the decorating business for over 100 years. The Valspar Corporation has produced paints and coatings globally for more than 200 years. Hirshfield’s operates stores in Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota and distributes commercial wall and flooring finishes across nine Midwestern states from offices in Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City.
