Default Paint company aquisitions

I don't think we have heard the last of paint aquisitions. As the market improves and paint companies become more profitable, you'll probably see more "soon".

Latest one is:
Valspar buying Ace paints

PPG buying Akzo Nobel's North American paint division

SW buying Comex, Kwal, General, Color Wheel, Parker, Geocel

Yep, Glidden stores may now have Pittsburg / Porter Paint signs in front of them. I wonder if this is really pushed along by Lowes to ultimately gain more market share. I can see them one day owning Valspar. Wouldn't surprise me in the least. They took over Cabot stain and now all the smaller retailers are backing away from Cabot.

wow,that's big news around here. general paint has been a big player in Canada for decades. it was (is) a chain that catered to the painting contractor. those stores are always busy with pro painters especially in the mornings. Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams are always empty when i go into their stores. General Paint's prices were always very good and they supplied good products. you are never too far away from the numerous stores they have.

i wonder if GP will stop selling insl-x products like cabinet coat? i actually got better prices at general paint for cabinet coat than i did at benjamin moore who owns insl-x.

November 12, 2012 - Canadian Press Release

Ace hardware paint was a freaking perfect paint. It didn't have all tha pizzaz of say a B.M. aura paint or the utter adhesion of say a California epoxy enforced floor paint. But god damn that was such good paint for a reasonable price, I never painted my own home with anything else. It will be sad to see that option disappear.
