The Paniccia family identified The Sherwin-Williams Company with the main purpose of ensuring the company’s growth plans, preserving an industry-leading brand and continuing to invest in employee growth and development. In this transaction, all international operations of the ICA Group have been acquired, including ICA’s interest in the India-based joint-venture, ICA Pidilite.
Sherwin-Williams and ICA offer highly complementary product offerings and together will provide an even greater portfolio of solutions to customers. Sherwin-Williams will position ICA to continue global excellence in wood coatings and drive cutting-edge product research and development, while building upon the company’s heritage and values.
