Since 1925, Dunn-Edwards Corporation has been the leading manufacturer and supplier of architectural and industrial coatings in the Southwest, providing a complete line of paints and painting supplies to professionals and quality-conscious consumers.

Dunn-Edwards paints are manufactured exclusively in the Southwest and formulated specifically for the climate of the Southwest. From the hot, arid deserts of Arizona and Nevada, to the cool, moist seacoast of California, Dunn-Edwards paints are uniquely formulated to withstand the elements, and protect and beautify a wide variety of architectural surfaces. Since it was founded in 1925, Dunn-Edwards has provided more than 450 million gallons of paint to the region – enough to cover more than 6,000 square miles of surface area.

Dunn-Edwards is ranked as the number one choice among licensed painting contractors in Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix. A recent independent survey, conducted by C.A. Walker & Associates, found that 62 percent of the professionals polled would choose to use Dunn-Edwards paint on their own homes. Of those professionals using Dunn-Edwards paint, 76 percent said they choose Dunn-Edwards because of its superior quality.

Careers

In recent years, public concerns have moved environmental issues to the forefront of America's agenda. The idea of "going green" has gained widespread support across a broad spectrum of consumers and businesses.

Growing demand for building projects that specify environmentally friendly, energy-efficient systems and materials has spurred a green movement in the construction industry. In 2006, an estimated $10 billion worth of green buildings were under construction in the United States.*

At Dunn-Edwards, we've always believed in being green. Our mission to provide the best performing paint and related supplies includes preserving the environment, conserving energy and material resources and protecting human health and safety.

We have long made it our practice to voluntarily initiate policies that safeguard the health of our customers, employees and the public — as well as the quality of our shared environment. In the early 1950s, we discontinued our last remaining lead-based paint product more than 25 years before federal regulation banned most uses of such products. In the 1970s, we reformulated all our water-based paints to eliminate the use of biocides containing mercury — long before the U.S. EPA imposed limited bans in 1990. In the early 1980s, we replaced ethylene glycol (a toxic solvent) with safer, non-toxic, FDA-approved propylene glycol.

And that's just the beginning. Our commitment to the principle of eco-efficiency extends all the way from maximizing paint performance — which gives the greatest protection of building substrates with the least outlay of time, energy and materials — to recycling over 95% of the process waste stream from our factories. We are constantly working harder to find ways to make us even greener.
