Ergon Asphalt & Emulsions Inc. has purchased Sumter Coatings Inc., which will be a part of the company’s ErgonArmor division. A leader in the paint and coatings industry since its founding in 1996, Sumter Coatings serves structural steel fabricators, industrial finishes and maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) markets.

Headquartered in Sumter, SC, the company produces enamel, urethane, alkyd and epoxy primers and coatings under its Metal Master, Topkote and other brands, as well as customers’ labels. Sumter Coatings also provides formulating and contract manufacturing services.

“We are excited about the opportunities to support Sumter Coatings’ growth and to bring a broader range of industrial coating products to ErgonArmor customers,” said Christine Osborne, vice president – sales and marketing for ErgonArmor. “Sumter Coatings’ formulating and production capabilities complement ErgonArmor’s capabilities beautifully.”

Sumter Coatings’ ability to process lower flash-point chemicals in its South Carolina facility will expand upon current capabilities at ErgonArmor’s Kansas City, KS, and Memphis, TN, production facilities.
