Chris Simmons shows off some of top of the line paint offered at Spectrum Paint Company in Edmond. She said these companies are among the oldest, most respected names in the business and are leaders in today’s paint technology. Spectrum also distributes lacquers, stains and specialty coatings from other manufacturers in order to provide its customers a broad and complete offering of paint and related products. Stafford said Spectrum is part of ALLPRO Corporation a business-to- business buying cooperative comprised of a network of independently-owned paint and decorating products dealers throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and parts of Europe. Its mission is to provide its membership with a distinct competitive advantage in today’s marketplace by seeking out only those programs and initiatives that will help improve the operations, market position, and profitability of its member companies. ALLPRO currently serves 270 such companies who collectively represent almost 1,400 store fronts that service the professional trades as well as the consumer market. “We have always seized any opportunities that have come our way,” she said. “We are part of an independent paint dealer group called ALLPRO Corporation. We network with all of the independent dealers across the U.S. We have the freedom to bring the best product to our customer, regardless who makes it.” Stafford said Spectrum strives to offer the flexibility and response time of a small company, yet offer customers a broader and more complete product offering than any “company” owned store or home center. “We know that no two businesses are alike,” she said. “Our independence allows us to create custom solutions and quick response times while providing best in class customer service. The goal is to always be the best paint option for people.” For more information call 405-359-7778 or visit September 2018 | The Business Times 21
