Benjamin Moore Acquires UK Distributor Shaw Paints Ltd

Published: 18 December 2020 - Neil Mead

Benjamin Moore & Co., North America’s favourite paint, colour and coatings brand, today announced the acquisition of its United Kingdom distribution partner, Shaw Paints Ltd. Prior to this transaction, Shaw Paints Ltd was the exclusive UK distributor of Benjamin Moore premium quality products and expansive colour offerings to consumers, designers and professionals alike. Effective immediately, industry veterans and Shaw Paints co-founders, Craig and Helen Shaw, will join the Benjamin Moore team and remain based in the UK.

With this acquisition, Shaw Paints Ltd will become Benjamin Moore UK, in an effort to accelerate the brand’s growth in the United Kingdom. The newly formed Benjamin Moore UK will continue to operate showrooms in Slough, Chelsea and Wilmslow, as well as fulfilment to a network of authorised stockists throughout the market.

“We’re thrilled to formally incorporate Shaw Paints Ltd into our international sales operations as they’ve been a trusted partner these past five years,” said Dan Calkins, Benjamin Moore Chairman & CEO. “With their sterling track record, this will enable Benjamin Moore to increase scale throughout the region and offer our best-in-class products to more UK customers.”
