ANDOVER, KS – Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings has added two distribution partners and new locations for two existing partners in its North American sales and service network. The distribution expansion supports Sherwin-Williams growth in the business and commercial aviation sector and strengthens the overall nationwide service for its expanding customer base.
The new authorized distributors are Aircraft Paint Supply in Chillicothe, Ohio; and Hightower Supply in Grand Junction, CO. Current distributor Aviall Services Inc., which already services Sherwin-Williams Aerospace in Dallas and Atlanta, has added a location in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Aero Performance Coatings adds a San Antonio, TX, location in addition to existing authorized distributorships in Fort Worth, TX; Cahokia, IL; Lake City, FL; and Harrisburg, PA.
The addition of the new Aviall and Aero Performance Coatings locations and the two new sales and service partners increases Sherwin-Williams Aerospace’s U.S. distribution network by nearly 30 percent, bringing the total number of authorized distribution locations to 18 throughout the country, as well as other distribution points in Canada and Mexico.
"We are to bringing dedicated regional sales and service expertise to our customers through our strong partnership with our distributors," says J. Marc Taylor, director of sales at Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings. "We are continually looking for ways to strengthen and expand our capabilities to all our customers in the general aviation, military and commercial aviation sectors. In particular, the addition of our South Florida distribution location also will allow us to serve our growing customer base in Central and South America."
Earlier this year, Sherwin-Williams received SAE International’s Aerospace Material Specification 3095 (AMS 3095) for Airline Exterior Systems, for its Jet Glo Express system bringing its complete coating systems to the commercial aerospace MRO market.
All Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings distributors offer Sherwin-Williams' entire range of aerospace products. Its distributors also provide custom-tint orders and just-in-time inventory for time-critical applications.
