Sherwin-Williams 1 billionth paint can

Sherwin-Williams has topped the production of 1 billion gallons of paint at its plant in Garland, Texas, as the plant marks its 50th anniversary.
   
The plant  opened in 1958, producing 4 million gallons a year. Today, it averages 20 million gallons a year for the company’s Harmony, Duration, SuperPaint and Dutch Boy lines.

Executives and plant employees marked the production milestone on Aug. 3.

The 375,000-square-foot plant employs 235 people who work three shifts, seven days a week. Some employees are second- or third-generation workers at the plant.

According to Sherwin-Williams, 1 billion gallons of paint would fill the Houston Astrodome 53 times. With that paint and a 4-inch brush, the company says, a contractor could:

• Circle the earth 9,200 times

• “Paint” 480 round trips to the moon

• “Paint” three round trips to Mars

• Cover Maryland and Delaware

• Paint the Golden Gate Bridge 21,000 times

• Paint the Empire State Building 72,000 times

• Paint the length of the Great Wall of China 2,400 times

Founded in 1866, Cleveland-based Sherwin-Williams is the No. 1 paint and coatings company in the United States and No. 3 worldwide.

Its many brands include Krylon, Minwax, and Thompson's Water Seal.
