Coating solutions company Hempel (Lyngby, Denmark) has announced the return of its iconic Jones-Blair brand with a refreshed brand identity, logo, and website. According to the company, Jones-Blair is broadly specified across oil and gas and industrial markets and is recognized for high-performance, high-gloss, anticorrosion coatings.

With more than 90 years of proven performance in the field, Jones-Blair has been a trusted partner for owners and applicators. “We’ve been listening to our customers, heard they wanted the Jones-Blair brand to return, and today, Jones-Blair is back,” says Todd Cottrell, Hempel’s vice president for the Americas region.

National Coatings & Supplies (NCS) (Raleigh, North Carolina, USA) will be the exclusive national distributor of the Jones-Blair product range.

Hempel acquired U.S. firm Jones-Blair in 2015 and integrated it into Hempel’s more extensive brand portfolio in 2017. Hempel also acquired Jones-Blair’s Neogard brand, a U.S. manufacturer of high-performance coatings to protect the building envelope through vehicular and pedestrian traffic coatings, protective roof coatings, seamless flooring, and elastomeric wall coatings.
