Key Account status
Only a select number of commercial / industrial painting contractors are given Key Account status by Sherwin-Williams, the largest paint and coatings company in the world, founded in 1866 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Painters USA meets their requirements, which include:
- Size and annual business volume.
- Ability to service multiple Sherwin-Williams regions.
- Focus on strategic client needs for asset protection.
- Trust and reliability as a business partner.
While criteria like size and service area are easily measured, trust and reliability are the intangible aspects that may be the most important requirement. Trust is what allows business partners to fully support each other in serving shared clients and markets.
According to Sherwin-Williams Midwest Central Area Sales Manager Michael Usterbowski:
“We view Painters USA as a true partner, based on our experience of working with them since the earliest days of their founding as a painting contractor, 40 years ago.”
Sherwin-Williams relies on commercial painting contractors like Painters USA to help assess the needs and unique operational environments of every commercial or industrial client and ensure the right protective coating products are selected and properly applied.
John Palomba, Key Account Sales Manager for Sherwin Williams’ Protective & Marine Division, has this to say:
“We obviously cannot monitor every industrial project that includes the use of our protective products, so we rely on the contractor’s capabilities. In our experience, Painters USA not only meets but exceeds client expectations, consistently across all sites.”
Painters USA is proud of our partnership with Sherwin-Williams, and we share a dedication to helping our joint clients maximize the operational and financial value of their capital assets. We do that through our knowledge, experience, unwavering commitment to client satisfaction, and support from suppliers like Sherwin-Williams.
ROI of coating protection
Modern paints and coatings do more than cover surfaces; they solve maintenance issues and add value to hardworking capital assets. Manufacturers like Sherwin Williams, PPG, Benjamin Moore, PIP, and Carboline offer a wide range of products for any commercial or industrial settings that pay for themselves in performance. Our coating expertise enables Painters USA to match the best products for your needs.
