In 1866, Henry Sherwin put his life savings of $2,000 into a paint and varnish partnership with Edward Williams. That partnership is the foundation for the No. 1 paint manufacturer in North America. Not only is Sherwin-Williams the most recognized paint brand in the world, it’s used by more professional contractors than any other paint.
