Traveling paint salesman Carl Deifel went from knocking on doors to having customers beat a path to his door after he started Cincinnati Color Company in 1929.
Even in the midst of the Great Depression, Carl’s refreshing “in business for your business” attitude and commitment to delivering superior products at competitive, wholesale prices was appreciated by the local trades – and remain the values of our family-owned and operated business more than 90 years later.
Here to serve more than 2,000 commercial customers as well as all our future commercial, retail and industrial customers, Cincinnati Color continues to evolve and expand to bring you the most impressive inventory of paint, coatings, spray paint and sundries in the tri-state area. Best of all, by buying from a local, independently-owned business, you’re supporting your hometown economy.
Aside from an excellent selection of high-quality brands including our very own Town & Country Paint, and time-trusted names like Rust-oleum® Industrial Coatings, Valspar Wood Coatings, Glidden Professional California Paint Products and Progress Professional, each of our locations carries a unique mix of specialized products including pool paint, floor epoxies, lacquers, deck stains and furniture finishes at factory-direct, wholesale prices. Our Oakley location can also do glass and screen repairs, proving once more that Cincinnati Color really is a one-stop shop.
While affordable prices, a huge inventory and comprehensive services are great, the real reason customers choose Cincinnati Color again and again is because they know they can rely on us. The unrivaled expertise of our entire team, many of whom have been with us a decade or more, ensure every product we sell is backed by great advice. If it’s something that can be painted or coated, it’s right up our alley.
Although we’re closing in on a century of service, Cincinnati Color continues to grow and adapt to the changing needs of our customers, including the way they prefer to shop.
Recently, we launched a 24/7 ordering system that combines the in-store experience with the convenience of online shopping. That means whether you’re on the job site or in the comfort of home, you can shop paint colors or re-order more of your favorite products and we’ll quickly get them ready for pick-up or delivery.
The convenience of online shopping is just the latest way Cincinnati Color shows that after 90 years, we’re still in business for your business.
