ABOUT UCP / HISTORY
Since its inception in 1960, UCP Paint Inc. has been an independently owned and operated company. It has been recognized as a supplier of high quality paints and coatings as well as a leader in product innovation. Building on its technical strengths, UCP has formed major alliances that provide it with the purchasing advantage of a world scale manufacturer providing consistently high quality products. These technical strengths combined with “best of industry” marketing skills allow UCP Paint to consistently be found among the top performers in the industry.
UCP has enjoyed steady growth and now supplies products from its 120,000 square foot, state of the art manufacturing facility.
Through the years, the company has responded to customer and market needs by developing technically superior products for the architectural, commercial and industrial markets using a variety of chemistries.
Known in Canada since 1907, Solignum joined the UCP family in 1976. Originally producing wood stains and preservatives, Solignum has grown to become the premier brand within the UCP offering and includes architectural interior and exterior paints, a range of industrial coatings, wood and concrete floor finishes and coatings for specialty markets such as traffic line marking paint, field marking paint, pool paints and barn paints. Customers look to Solignum for a truly complete range of high quality products.
UCP has also formed major alliances that provide it with “best of industry” level marketing and merchandising resources. Through its membership in Color Guild (an international association of paint producers), UCP can offer its customers proprietary color systems, design direction for in-store merchandising, color trends as well as a complete range of merchandising material. The combined experience of an international membership provides a wealth of experience in all aspects of paint product merchandising to the dealer and tips and troubleshooting for the consumer.
