Sherwin Williams – One of the world’s best in coatings

Cleveland based, Sherwin Williams was founded by Henry Sherwin and Edward Williams in 1866. That year, the company made $400,600 in sales revenue. 150 years later, the company is the third largest player in the global manufacturing and distribution of coatings and related products. In 2016 Sherwin-Williams reported over $11 billion in net sales, operating from more than 4,800 company operated stores and facilities.

1866 was an important year for Sherwin Williams also due to the fact that the “Father” of Sherwin Williams Canada, Walter Cottingham was born. At 21 years of age, he established manufacturing facilities in Montreal and became instrumental in growing Sherwin-Williams’ Canadian presence. There are 213 company paint stores in Canada with that number projected to grow even more over the coming years.

In this article we explore the Sherwin Williams paints and coatings in detail – defining the application areas and product specifications.
