Scott Paint Company was founded in 1965 by the Wagman Family in a 4,500 sq.ft. factory in North Sarasota. We started with one mixing machine, energy and determination. Four years later, we expanded and moved to Cattlemen Road in East Sarasota. In 1988, Scott Paint acquired DPI Quality Paints of Clearwater, Florida, doubling the size of the company and pushing yearly production to over 1.5 million gallons. Continued growth and the need to consolidate administrative and accounting offices with production engendered yet another move in January 1993 to a new state-of-the-art 83,000 sq.ft. facility on 11 acres in East Sarasota. Additional growth brought our total number of stores to 18 in 1997.
In 1998, Scott Paint Company was acquired by Ramer Equities, Inc. of Baltimore, Maryland. Scott Paint's quality reputation, financial strength and corporate philosophy appealed to the Ramer Family, as they committed to expanding Scott Paint's dominant position on Florida's west coast.
Scott Paint continues to grow, and is stronger than ever. We now own 25 factory-direct stores on the west coast of Florida and manufacture over two million gallons of Florida's Best Paint every year.
