Sherwin-Williams has completed the acquisition of Euronavy-Tintas Maritimas e Industriais S.A. of Lisbon, Portugal -- the company joins Sherwin-William’s Global Protective & Marine Coatings Division.

Euronavy produces marine and protective coatings applied to ships, off-shore platforms, storage tanks, steel, concrete and flooring.

“We are pleased to bring Euronavy, a well respected global company and its talented people into the Sherwin-Williams family,” said Christopher M.
