Columbia Paint & Coatings


Columbia Paint & Coatings Co., headquartered in Spokane, Washington, is a leading manufacturer and distributor of paints and coatings in the western and pacific northwestern portions of the United States. Columbia services the professional painting contractor, builder and do-it-yourself markets through 41 company-owned stores. The shareholders of privately-held Columbia engaged Grace Matthews to market the company to selected strategic buyers.

With its deep knowledge base and experience in the coatings industry, Grace Matthews identified a group of the best potential buyers, for Columbia, and negotiated and structured a merger with Sherwin-Williams, a global leader in the manufacture, development, distribution, and sale of coatings and related products to professional, industrial, commercial, and retail customers. Following the merger, Columbia will become a subsidiary of Sherwin-Williams.
