“Over the past several years, we have successfully built strong teams and grown these businesses into leadership positions in their markets,” said Doug Mattscheck, president and CEO of Quest Specialty Chemicals. “I’m very pleased that in Valspar we have a buyer who can continue to build the business, brands and customer relationships.”

QAP manufactures automotive refinish coatings, fillers, putties, and other accessories primarily under the Matrix, Prospray and USC brands globally, and QIP serves both the professional and consumer markets with aerosol spray products and coatings for industrial applications under the Patriot, Raabe and Precision Color brands.

“Our brands are well recognized and respected, and they compete favorably with premium brands in performance and color-matching at a better value,” said Mattscheck. “They will be a good complement to Valspar’s product range.”
