Rodda Paint Co. will acquire five Kelly-Moore company-owned stores, four located in Idaho and one on the Oregon border.
The stores are located in the Idaho cities of Caldwell, Meridian, Boise and Twin Falls. The Oregon store is in Ontario.
Rodda is described as the largest family-owned and operated paint and coatings company in the Pacific Northwest, based in Portland, Oregon. The five new stores will join Rodda’s retail group of 48 locations and its network of 23 independent retailers.
Rodda will continue to distribute Kelly-Moore paint.
“Kelly-Moore is excited to announce this alliance with Rodda Paints,” said Steve DeVoe, CEO and president of Kelly-Moore Paints.
According to DeVoe, while both Kelly-Moore and Rodda drive for increased sales in the Idaho market, Kelly-Moore will continue its aggressive retail expansion with eight new retail stores in California slated to open by 2015, including their recently opened locations in Petaluma and Daly City. Kelly-Moore currently owns and operates 146 paint stores.
