About Colorado Paint

We Cover Colorado


Colorado Paint Company was established in 1922. Although much has changed over the past 92 years, our commitment has remained the same: to provide the very best products and service we can.

In 2008, CPC was acquired by SWARCO America Inc. Since this acquisition, Colorado Paint Company has grown in several areas, including traffic coatings, decorative/architectural paints, and industrial manufacturing.
