Company Overview Visit valspar.com website
Valspar is a global company that began in 1840 when two Englishmen created a paint and varnish company. The name Valspar was chosen from the combination of the words "valuable" and "spalpeen," which is an Irish/Celtic insult implying a rascal or worthless person.
In 1984, Valspar merged with an existing Minneapolis-based paint company called Sherwin-Williams Co., a partnership lasting until 2005 when Sherwin-Williams bought out its competitor, but it has kept the well-respected name.
Valspar manufactures products for consumers, construction companies, government organizations and other businesses in more than 100 countries worldwide. According to their website, they supply three main areas: coatings for consumer, commercial and industrial use.
Valspar is one of the most popular brands offered by Sherwin-Williams, with a wide variety of choices for different purposes, such as automotive paints and specialty coatings.
