Spectrum Paint Acquires PROfessional Paint and Coatings

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (April 21st, 2014) - Spectrum Paint Company has purchased the assets of all PROfessional Paint and Coatings (PPC) stores located in the greater Kansas City area, Lawrence, Kansas, as well as Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska. PPC operated 10 outlets which distributed Benjamin Moore and Devoe Paint. Spectrum will continue to sell Benjamin Moore and Devoe in addition to SPEC-PROE, SPEC-ONE and ALLPRO products. The stores will open as Spectrum Paint locations on Monday, April 21st, 2014.

"The most important thing we are getting in this acquisition is the wealth of experience and knowledge that the employees bring to our team," said Travis Detter, Spectrum Paint president. " I was very impressed when I visited the stores. I can't imagine a more prepared staff to help us build a strong presence in the midwest."

Spectrum Paint Company was established in 1986 and has grown into the largest independent paint dealer in the United States. The addition will bring the company's total store number to 47, with stores in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and North and South Carolina. Consistent growth over the past three decades is a testament to Spectrum's commitment to be a leading supplier of architectural, commercial and industrial coatings. For over 25 years, Spectrum Paint has been providing professionals and homeowners with top quality products, competitive prices and the best possible service. Spectrum strives to offer the flexibility and response time of a small company, yet offer customers a broader and more complete product offering than any "company" owned store or home center.
