Sherwin-Williams Mulls Acquisitions

The Sherwin-Williams Company (NYSE:SHW) plans to make acquisitions. Chris Connor, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer of the company said: “We support the growth of the company's needs through CapEx. This is a lot of maintenance CapEx, making sure that our paint stores have enough tinting equipment, shaking equipment, delivery vehicles etc. to keep pace with our painting contractors as well as CapEx for our manufacturing footprint. That really leaves us cash to do both treasury stock purchase and acquisitions. If we can find acquisitions that make sense for us and we like to buy these regional paint store chains, bolt them on to our platform and drive them forward, we are interested in technology plays for our global businesses. But a very disciplined approach there.”
