In the 1960s, Sherwin-Williams entered Jamaica as a marketing operation. Products were exported throughout the Caribbean through a number of dealers under the name Sherwin-Williams Company of the West Indies Limited.
The head office and warehouse were located at 178 Spanish Town Road, on the premises of what was then known as the Deluxe Theatre. Back then, there were only two retail outlets, located in Montego Bay and Slipe Road.
In late 1972, a factory was established in White Marl, St. Catherine, to manufacture products locally. A new company was formed, named Sherwin-Williams (West Indies) Ltd. In April 1974, the operation opened its doors. Production commenced on a full range of automotive, decorative and industrial finishes. Notably, the automotive finishes were the first of their type to be manufactured in Jamaica. The factory still proudly stands today.
The company has since grown tremendously—presently, we employ approximately 150 employees, with 18 retail outlets, 4 warehouses and a large dealership network islandwide.
