Premier Paint Roller Co LLC of Richmond Hill, New York, is proud to announce a significant investment and expansion of its Made in USA products. Premier, a third-generation, family-owned business, is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2018 and is one of the oldest, independent, paint applicator manufacturers in North America. Premier has been located in NYC since its founding in 1968. This major investment in both machinery and upgrade of its Queens, New York, facility
represents a serious long-term commitment to the growth and longevity of the company.

“Premier has been manufacturing high-quality roller covers for decades and it made complete strategic sense for us to apply that commitment to high-quality paint brushes as well. We have been one of the largest importers of paint brushes for many years and used this knowledge to identify growth opportunities of various quality-levels of Made in USA brushes,” said Kevin Leichter, third generation and current CEO of Premier. “We are proud to partner with DuPont® who has been
extremely supportive of our initial roll-out with paintbrush filaments manufactured in their West Virginia facility. It has been great to partner with a large company that supports our quest to grow manufacturing in the United States, especially here at home in New York City. Additionally, as we begin to roll-out various products, our customers have also been extremely supportive and eager to commit to domestically made brushes.”

Premier Paint Roller’s corporate office is located in Richmond Hill, Queens. It has a new West Coast facility located in Phoenix, Arizona and recently opened a warehouse in Mexico City to assist in its Latin American expansion plans. Additionally, an office in Shanghai handles quality control and sourcing.
