Micca Paint Inc
Micca Paint Inc., a Quebec based manufacturer of paint and coatings was founded in 1985. As president, founder and principal shareholder, Michel Cutrone's thirty-eight years of experience in the paint industry have been invaluable to the growth of the company. Micca Paint Inc. began production in an 8000 sq. foot building in Ville St-Laurent. Today, the head office, a 42,000-sq. foot plant, is located in the Laval industrial park in a building specifically constructed for paint fabrication.
In 1985 there was one retail outlet in St-Leonard. Micca Paint Inc. has since expanded its operations to include thirteen (13) Micca stores in the following cities in Quebec and Ontario: Gatineau, Laval, Longueuil, Mississauga (Toronto), N.D.G., Ottawa, Repentigny, Rivières des Prairies, St-Eustache, St-Jérôme, St-Laurent, St-Leonard, and Sherbrooke. The main objective is to offer to the consumer first quality paint made with the finest resins at the lowest possible price. The strength of Micca rests with its knowledgeable full-time trained technical staff. With over 150 products to choose from, the staff must be able to select the right product for each customers' exact needs. The ability to satisfy customer's needs has created a loyal clientelle.
Since the beginning, Micca's vision has been to develop many new water-based coatings not yet available in the marketplace. Since all consumer products have an impact on our environment, Micca has acknowledged its environmental responsibility. All latex and acrylic paints manufactured by Micca Paint Inc. are certified Ecologo by Environment Canada. Water-based varnishes and epoxies are less harsh than the alternative alkyd products. None of the paints or coatings contain lead or mercury. All latex and acrylic paints are low in volatile organic compounds (VOC).
When the marketplace was changing from off-whites to colours, Micca responded with colour-matching computers and certified interior designers who offer customers in-store and at home consultations. In this rapidly changing market, Micca believes it's important to be able to foresee the trends and make adjustments accordingly. At Micca, the research and development of new products are established as a continual process.
