Dunn-Edwards, founded in 1925, operates more than 100 stores in five western states: California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas. Dunn- Edwards is a supplier of architectural and industrial coatings, providing a complete line of paints and professional painting supplies to architects, designers, painting contractors, homebuilders and property managers in the Southwest; it also serves do-it-yourselfers, although professionals account for a majority of sales. The company has launched two unique new online tools: A Spec Guide based on project type (i.e. schools, health care facilities), and a Color Reference Center where HOAs and property management companies can archive approved color schemes for convenient access. During the year Dunn-Edwards introduced several new products including Contractor’s Edge interior maintenance flat and semi-gloss paint; Block-It Premium high-performance stain-blocking primer; Bloc-Rust Premium metal primer; and Enso, a premium, low odor, zero-VOC paint.
