About Sherwin Williams, History and Headquarters Information


Sherwin Williams was founded in the year 1866. The company has been operational for almost 153 years now. The founders of the company were Edward Williams and Henry Sherwin. The company had initially sold pigments and other painting supplies. In the year 1877, the company had developed the first re-sealable paint can. Then in the year 1884, Percy Neyman was hired as a paint chemist, which was a first in the industry. The company later had acquired several competitors in the early 1900s, including the Martin-Senour Company as well.

In the year 1920, the company had become a limited public entity on the New York Stock Exchange. The company had faced various financial issues in the 1970s but bounced back in the 80s and then had acquired rivals Dutch Boy and Dupli-Color too as well. In the year 2014, the Santa Clara County Superior Court ruled that Sherwin-Williams, along with ConAgra and NL Industries, were jointly and singularly liable to pay for almost more than $1.1 billion, in order to be paid into a lead paint abatement fund, which can be used to remove lead paint from older housing units. As of the year 2007, the company had purchased Columbia Paint & Coatings. Then in the year 2011, the company had acquired Leighs Paints, which was based in Bolton, UK. They were the manufacturers of intumescent and high-performance industrial coatings too. By the year 2012, the company had begun the process of purchasing the Comex Group. Comex was then the fourth largest paint manufacturer in North America. After the Mexican antitrust regulators voted against the deal twice, the company had bought over Comex's US and Canadian divisions for almost $165 million, during the year 2013. In the year 2007, the company had also introduced its first 'Idea Centre' in Shaker Heights, Ohio, USA, in an effort to provide customers with an interior design environment as contrasted with its leading conventional paint stores instead. Finally, as of the year 2016, it was announced that Valspar would be taken over for $9.3 billion. The merger was completed in the year 2017. By the year 2017, a lawsuit was filed against the company, claiming it was responsible for eighty of its major coating products for being very much defective. Then again in the year 2017, a federal class-action lawsuit was filed against the company as well. According to the Wall Street Journal, in the year 2018, a credit rating agency analyst with numerous insider information regarding the unannounced acquisition of Valspar by the company, and therefore two acquaintances were arrested and also charged with securities fraud and conspiracy as well. The headquarters of the company is based in 101 West Prospect Avenue. The name of the place is Cleveland, while the name of the state is Ohio, USA. The pin code of the area is 44115.


Sherwin Williams is an American company that focuses on the manufacturing and selling of various kinds of paints, coatings and other related products as well. As of the year 2017, the company has its presence in over 4,600 locations all over the USA. The current CEO of the company is John G Morikis. As of the year 2017, the total revenue generated by the company is more than $14.9 billion. Also, the number of employees working at the company, as of the year 2017, is more than 52,600.

    Been dealing with your Covington, Washington store and wanted to complement you on your staff. Nate, Alex and Jake have done an awesome job trying to take care of my deck stain color needs. They have worked very hard to make me a happy camper. Great customer service skills.

  • J.W. Henderson says:

    I purchased several hundred gallons of Super Paint Satin with the project specs from Sherwin Williams with the Vinyl Safe formula for a vinyl project in Greeneville, SC. The first order I made was correct and delivered to the site correctly (60 gallons). All orders from that were ordered by local SW rep and NONE of them arrived with the Vinyl Safe colorant system. Consequently most of the vinyl was horribly damaged and SW absolutely took no responsibility even though the computer order system asks with a prompt if the colors chosen were going on vinyl. Long story short the owner of the property got new siding and myself, I just got stiffed several thousand dollars and the remaining paint bill. I’m told it was a long list of miscommunication and blah, blah, blah. But that doesn’t pay my bills. Although I am not surprised I am thoroughly disappointed in SW actions in this whole debacle. If you ever do business in Greeneville, SC. I recommend you use ANYONE other than SW.

  • Trevor St. Bernard says:

    is your Grenada office still operating ? it seems like you have totally failed the Grenadian people at this time of year when our tradition has always been to paint and beautify our premises . Very poor showing on your company’s part

  • Hal says:

    Your main number doesnt work and nobody answers at a local sherwin store. ARE YOU GOING OUT OF BUSINESS

  • john keene says:

    do you still do the poster type wall hangings of the great lake steamer ships stacks. i have one would like another ?

  • jodi says:

    I just purchased paint today from Simpson Ferry, Mechanicsburg, Pa site. When I got home I was not at all happy with the color. This was purchased over the phone, curb side pickup only. I called and spoke with
    “Shaquana”?, I think that was her name, she was so absolutely rude to me. First of all, your website is NOT user friendly. Secondly, I should have the option of returning it, the color I got is not at all what I ordered…
    Point is, they messed up, and don’t want to own up to it or help me by offering me some kind of discount.
    I won’t go back there and I will tell others my horrible experience…

  • Kathlern says:

    Sherwin Williams need to be stopped before someone dies from COVID-19. I guarantee you that Cleveland offices are empty and they are working from home. Meanwhile they even recommended OUTLOUD to staff heavy these next few weeks in anticipation of heavy foot traffic.
    Bring in more employees to work. Infect everyone.

  • phil streechon says:

    Hi I purchased a gallon of paint primer for my side walk way from Lows, the product is deflective . Valspar is the mfg and the warranty is to replace or a full refund and not responsible for damages except if state law permits more. I have a 45 foot outside cement walkway that is covered with a sticky goo that will not dry. thanks phil from flordia

  • Tracey Smith says:

    The deck stain I used didn’t last a year and didn’t soak into the wood. The stain sat on top of wood and peeled off. Terrible product. I will never buy anything from Sherwin Williams ever again, they support Trump! Because of poor quality products and a sleazy CEO, DON’T GIVE THEM A DIME OF YOUR MONEY!

  • Brenda Lewis says:

    I have a story to tell and need maybe some of your history to tell it. You may have some information I need to fill in somethings about my Dad. The animal commercial gave me some clues. Please contact me asap.
