An alliance of independent North American paint dealers has agreed to make PPG Industries Inc. the exclusive manufacturer of the group's premium paint brand.

PPG’s North American architectural coatings business has taken a minority equity position in The Coatings Alliance LLC, of Buffalo, NY, a cooperative of 43 paint dealers in the U.S. and Canada, PPG announced.

Virginia-based designer Barry Dixon created the color palette for the C2 Paint brand, which will now be produced for The Coatings Alliance exclusively by PPG Industries.

The deal makes the world's largest paint and coatings maker the exclusive paint manufacturer and sales representative for the Alliance's C2 Paint brand. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Under the agreement, PPG will produce the TCA-owned C2 Paint brand and act as an independent sales representative for C2 Paint to independent paint and decorating retailers throughout North America.

TCA was started in 1998 by a former paint chemist and comprises “a rare group of independent retailers, colorists and paint experts,” according to C2’s website.

Expanding Options and Reach

“TCA’s C2 Paint is an exclusive, dealer-owned brand that will provide our existing network of independent retailers with another premium product option,” said Scott Sinetar, PPG vice president, architectural coatings, North America.

Added Tom Hill, CEO of TCA, “PPG’s partnership will also allow a greater investment in research and development, marketing, and distribution to ensure C2 Paint’s premier market position, as well as to further its commitment to eco-friendly, more sustainable products.”
