Protective coatings manufacturer The Sherwin-Williams Company (Cleveland, Ohio, USA) recently inaugurated its new campus headquarters for Asia.

Located in Shanghai, China, the state-of-the-art facility is intended to serve as a major bridgehead of the Fortune 500 coatings and paints company to help drive its growth in the region. It is also a testament to the company’s successful integration with Valspar after acquiring the latter in 2017.            

“For the past two years, we have been making strides to integrate the best of our people, technologies, product offerings, and practices in order to create more value for our customers,” says Jayson Wu, president of The Sherwin-Williams Company Asia. “The establishment of our new Asia headquarters is a significant move that enables us to soar to new heights in Asia.”         

With space of more than 5,800 m2 (62,430.7 ft2), the new campus headquarters is located in the Shibei One Center within the Shanghai municipality. Utilizing the company’s environmentally friendly coatings, the campus headquarters will house all its business units including automotive, consumer, coil, general industrial, industrial wood, packaging, and protective and marine.

A highlight of its full array of facilities is a spacious showroom on the ground floor that exhibits all of the company’s cutting-edge solutions and product offerings, emphasizing how the group delivers on its commitment to customers.

“We have witnessed an across-the-board growth in demand towards quality coatings and paints products for various applications in Asia,” Wu says. “Housing our entire headquarters team in one place will provide us with enormous benefits of synergy and cross-marketing, and more importantly, delivering more value-added services to our customers.”

Founded in 1866, Sherwin-Williams first entered Asia in 1930. Currently, the company has operations in China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam with over 10 production plants, eight technology centers, four application laboratories, and a workforce of more than 3,500 people in the region.
