Established in 1898, Kirker Automotive Finishes is one of America’s oldest paint manufacturers still in existence today. For more than 100 years, we’ve manufactured high quality paints and related products, using only premium raw materials and the latest coatings technologies.

We are proud of our quality record and are committed to manufacturing user-friendly products that work right each and every time. Kirker’s focus on quality assurance and careful attention to detail help to ensure that our coatings stand up to the most demanding automotive industry standards.

Our R&D efforts are focused on improving existing products and identifying new items to suit emerging needs as they arise. We listen to the people who use our products and trust their opinions. We think customer feedback should be an important driving force behind any company’s innovation. That certainly is the case at Kirker Automotive Finishes.

Over the years, we have worked hard to build the Kirker Automotive Finishes reputation and grow our business. With ever-expanding distribution and a rapidly spreading customer base, Kirker Automotive Finishes continues to define itself as the country’s primary source for low-cost automotive refinish materials.

About Our Parent Company:
Kirker Automotive Finishes is one of several divisions owned and operated by Coventry Coatings Corp., a New York-based business established in 1987. In addition to the product line from Kirker Automotive Finishes – which it acquired in 1996 – the company maintains a diverse portfolio of industrial, high-performance and specialty coatings which it sells under trade names such as Coventry Coatings, North American Technologies and Trylaner.

Late in 2004, Coventry Coatings Corp. moved all operations to a new location in Newburgh, New York. The move effectively doubled production and warehousing space for Coventry Coatings Corp. The new facility is much more modern than the company’s previous confines, and provides significant operating efficiencies.
