Notes: After getting hit by two major hurricanes in late 2017, and a series of strong earthquakes in 2019, Lanco Paints & Coatings’ headquarters in Puerto Rico sustained devastating damages, including the loss of the main office building plus significant structural damage to production and warehouse buildings. Thanks to the strength and resiliency of its employees, the company was able to bounce back and resume operations, all while taking care of its business abroad, customers, and its community and families. As Puerto Rico continues its path to recovery after hurricanes and earthquakes, Lanco continues to play a critical role in the reconstruction of the island by taking part in social work, community initiatives and government-led projects.
