Sherwin-Williams to acquire Columbia Paint & Coatings

Paint and coatings giant Sherwin-Williams has announced it will acquire Spokane, Wash.-based Columbia Paint & Coatings. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Columbia operates 41 company-owned stores in the Northwest and West regions of the United States. Operations are located in South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Arizona.

Columbia caters to professional painting contractors, builders and DIYers. The company has been in operation for 60 years. Columbia will be merged into Sherwin-Williams and become a subsidiary of the Cleveland-based company.

“We at Columbia Paint are very excited about this merger and are confident that it will allow us to provide a stronger level of service and support to our customers, both now and in the future,” said H.H. Larison, CEO of Columbia Paint & Coatings.

“After the transaction is completed, Columbia's paints and coatings will continue to be provided through Columbia's existing stores,” explained Sherwin-Williams CEO Christopher Connor.

Sherwin-Williams operates 3,226 company-owned stores in the United States and manufactures paint and coatings under the names Dutch Boy, Krylon, Minwax and Thompson’s Water Seal.
