New Sherwin Williams Sign: Our Home Since 1866. Our Pride Forever


Last month, Sherwin-Williams’ Global Hedquarters installed a giant 10-story banner – one of the nation’s largest – saluting Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. Reading, “Our Home Since 1866. Our Pride Forever”, the 1.3 ton banner salutes not only Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, but Sherwin-Williams’s 144 year commitment to one of the best cities in the country.

Sherwin-Williams’s Chairman & CEO, Christopher M. Connor, said in a release, “ Our Home Since 1866. Our Pride Forever, helps us capture, harness and crystallize a powerful, energizing message that Cleveland and Northeast Ohio is not only one of the best locations in the nation, but our community is one of the best locations in the world! We want to salute our great people supported by world class companies, health care institutions, universities, natural resources, sports’ teams, cultural amenities like the orchestra, museums and theaters as well as affordable housing.”

He added, “This wall banner salutes the strength, energy, talent, creativity, enthusiasm, and warm hospitality embodied on a daily basis by the people of Northeast Ohio. Sherwin-Williams’s 144 year commitment to Cleveland and Northeast Ohio demonstrates why we are filled with pride and honored to be part of this great community.”

    I have absolutely no need for paint at the moment, but this makes me want to run out and buy a gallon of Sherwin Williams’ finest!
