Since it began operations, Lanco Paints & Coatings’ mission has been one of superior customer satisfaction centered on its drive to produce the best quality products. Based on its founder’s creed, Lanco’s product line encompasses a wide array of applications ranging from architectural coatings and wood finishes to industrial adhesives and high-performance sealants. After many years of hard work and dedication, this family-owned company has grown to an international enterprise with manufacturing facilities in the US, the Caribbean, Central, and South America. Lanco has maintained its sense of purpose even though it remains one of the fastest-growing paint manufacturers in the world. Lanco’s products can be found from the southernmost tip of Chile to northern Canada.
After getting hit by two major hurricanes in late 2017, and a series of strong earthquakes in 2019, Lanco Paints & Coatings headquarters in Puerto Rico sustained devastating damages, including the loss of the main office building plus significant structural damage to production and warehouse buildings. Thanks to the strength and resiliency of its employees, the company was able to bounce back and resume operations in no time. As Puerto Rico continues its path to recovery after hurricanes and earthquakes, Lanco continues to play a critical role in the reconstruction of the island by taking part in social work, and community initiatives, and government-led projects.
