The Plasti-Kote name has been synonymous with premium
quality, innovative, specialty coatings for over 75 years. Having the best
products in the marketplace has enabled us to achieve this status and
consistently meet new challenges.
We have faced, and met, the ongoing obstacles presented by
ever-changing regulations that would threaten aerosol paint, one of the most
useful products ever invented. In fact, Plasti-Kote began developing
environmentally safer aerosol paints long before it became an issue. We were the
first United States manufacturer to do so and our patents for water based
aerosol paints date back to 1977.
In 1998, Plasti-Kote reached a major milestone in our
history. We have joined forces with the Valspar Corporation to become an even
more formidable force in the paint and coatings industry. Valspar has a long
standing history of producing quality paints, stains and specialty coatings
dating back to 1806. Many of the clipper ships that sailed the oceans in the
1800’s were protected by Valspar marine products. Today, Valspar operates 23
plants, is the 6th largest coatings manufacturer in the United States, and a
Fortune 500 Company.
While Plasti-Kote general purpose spray paints are a large
segment of our business, we continue to serve a diversity of distribution
channels with a wide variety of products… from our Consumer Brands Division of
specialty and decorative finishes, to our Automotive brands division serving the
Automotive Aftermarket, to our Industrial Division's wide range of maintenance
paints and coatings, and to our International division's wide variety of spray
paints offered in many countries.
As the world continues to become an international
marketplace, Plasti-Kote products will be seen on even more retail shelves
throughout the world. We are committed to establishing a world wide identity and
presence, and as of 1999, our packaging serves 60 different countries in 18
Whether in North America or around the globe, Plasti-Kote
and Valspar alike are proud of our most valuable resource… talented, hardworking
people who are dedicated to the old-fashioned principle of treating our
customers like friends. We are ready and eager to provide our customers, and
prospective customers, with the highest quality, most innovative products and
service in the world. Plasti-Kote and Valspar are perfect partners… and a
