One of the largest employee-owned paint companies in the United States, Kelly-Moore is known in the industry as the “Painter’s Paint Store.” The company has a reputation in the industry for its high-quality products, fair prices and exceptional customer service. A leader and innovator of waterborne coating technology, Kelly-Moore was the first major paint company to offer recycled/reclaimed paints and zero-VOC waterborne colorants.

Notes: In June 2020, Kelly-Moore Paints launched DuraPoxy Exterior, a high-hide waterborne acrylic designed for rapid moisture resistance, which is perfect for projects that need exceptional hide or when weather can be harsh or unpredictable. In February 2021, the company expanded its online presence by adding the Kelly-Moore Pro Order Pad (Order@kellymoore.com). Contractors can order online and either pick up in-store or have delivered to their job. Kelly-Moore “The Painters Paint Store” is now open 24/7 for contractor orders.
