Keeping a hand on the pulse of the coatings beat

By Tim Wright

Published July 11, 2006
After crunching countless numbers and sifting through one annual report after another, we're proud to present you with another edition of our Top Companies Report.

As one of our most highly anticipated features, I hope you find this report to be a valuable asset throughout the year. No where else will you find such a comprehensive gathering of information about the major paint and coatings manufacturers around the globe in one place.

It's not easy and requires lots of hours mining for information, but hey, that's our job-to keep our hands on the pulse of the paint and coatings beat, providing you with the information you need.

Each year since 1996, when Coatings World first began profiling the largest companies in our industry based on sales of paint, coatings, adhesives and sealants, our list has continued to grow. This year's report includes 65 companies around the globe with sales greater than $100 million, when converted to U.S. dollars, and five companies to watch.

The top ten are familiar to you all-Akzo Nobel, Henkel, ICI, Sherwin-Williams, PPG, DuPont, BASF, Valspar, RPM and SigmaKalon.

There are several companies making their debut appearance including Berger Paints in India, Denmark's Flugger, Boero Group in Spain, Spraylat in the US and lastly, Empils, represents the first Russian coatings manufacturer to be included in our report.

As we continue to try and extend the reach of Coatings World to bring you a truly global publication, we also need your help. I'm sure there are other companies out that deserve recognition and if you are aware of any that might fit the criteria for this report, please let me know. You can e-mail me at twright@rodpub.com. In addition, tell me what you think of this year's report. How can we make it better? What would you like to see? Thank you and I look forward to your thoughts.
