PPG Acquires Connecticut-based Architectural Paint Distributor Painter’s Supply

June 3, 2014

PPG Industrie's North American architectural coatings business has acquired substantially all of the assets of Painter’s Supply, an independent architectural paint distributor headquartered in Connecticut. Painter’s Supply operates 10 locations in Connecticut and Massachusetts. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“The acquisition of Painter’s Supply supports our dedication to our professional customers,” said Scott Sinetar, PPG vice president, architectural coatings, North America. “A fundamental part of our strategy is to expand distribution to professional painters and contractors.

“Independent dealers continue to be a key distribution channel for our business and our products, which is why we’re investing more in our independent dealers now than ever before. However, when dealers are looking for a partner, PPG is constantly looking for ways to strengthen its network,” Sinetar continued.

PPG Architectural Coatings is an industry leader in residential and commercial coatings and products. The business produces paints, stains and specialty coatings marketed under well-recognized product lines such as the FLOOD, GLIDDEN, LIQUID NAILS, MANOR HALL, OLYMPIC, PPG PITTSBURGH PAINTS, PPG PORTER PAINTS, PPG Paints and SIKKENS brands. Its distribution network includes more than 900 company-owned stores in North America, more than 5,000 independent dealer locations and all major home improvement centers.
