Our story

Where we come from, and where we are going...

Most people don't realize that the original Colorado Paint Company was established in 1922. Back then, Denver was a small but growing city located in a place that many out east still thought of as the Frontier. After the second World War, Colorado Paint was acquired in 1947 by the Valis family, who maintained ownership of the company for 61 years. In 2008, the Swarco Group - an international leader in developing and manufacturing products for the traffic market - acquired Colorado Paint Company with the goal of providing superior paints and coatings to the traffic, architectural, and light industrial markets. Since then, we have taken tremendous strides in developing high quality, competitively priced products to our customers.
