Nationwide Protective Coatings is finishing up its 56th year manufacturing paints and coatings in Sarasota, Fla., highlighting decades of "Made in the USA" production and jobs.

The company has grown from a small manufacturer supplying local contractors with paint to a company with both domestic and international reach, delivering products to all corners of the globe. Nationwide Protective Coatings has been able to accomplish this through hard work, determination, unique marketing and creating paints and coatings made in the United States.

Nationwide Protective Coatings' manufacturing process begins with formulating and creating eco-friendly products using the highest quality raw materials produced in the U.S. It also purchases its facility equipment from American-sourced suppliers over the years.

In a release, Nationwide Protective Coatings emphasized that buying and supplying American-made products is vitally important to the economy, environment and benefits the consumer. The company said another positive of creating items domestically is that just-in-time production means lower overhead and savings that can be passed on to the end user.

The company's concerns for global impact go beyond creating sustainable materials. Domestic manufacturers in the U.S. are also held to higher quality, environmental and safety standards. Choosing products "Made in the USA" also reduce overall carbon emissions and fuel delivery costs lowering the impact on the environment.

As an American paint and coating manufacturer, Nationwide Protective Coatings is pushing into a new era in “make American and buy American.” The company looks forward to providing its extensive catalog of products for years to come where there is demand for "Made in the USA" paints and coatings.
