Manufacturing & Distributing Quality Paint & Coating products that deliver the Ultimate Finish
When Randall Rogers says, “paint runs in my veins”, he really means it as a third-generation paint maker. PROTEK Paint & Varnish Company started in 1950 and manufactured the Alkyd Resins used to make Paint and the Paint for the Home and Light Industrial applications. As the 1960‘s progressed, a change began, as manufacturing focused exclusively on Paint.
In the late 1980’s Randall helped to get PROTEK into new technologies, such as: Two-Component Epoxies, Moisture Cured Urethanes, Two-Component Urethanes, Anti-Graffiti coatings and many more. Today the PROTEK family extended to include purchased companies such as Pyrologistix, Texturline and Aquarius Coatings.
Different lines of Specialty Products
Along with importing some of the finest Italian Venetian Plaster, Texturline came the ability to manufacture Acrylic plaster alternatives to the lime based products. Acrylic products are much more compatible to North American freeze/thaw cycles. As a result, house brands were developed for the DIY Market through the Cottage Paint & Urban Paint brands.
