Tennant Finalizes Divestment of Coatings Division

February 8, 2021 Tennant Finalizes Divestment of Coatings Division

Tennant Co. has successfully completed the divestment of its coatings business, Tennant Coatings, to The Sherwin-Williams Co.

Per the terms of the deal, nearly 70 Tennant employees are expected to join Sherwin-Williams’ team. Financial details of the transaction were not announced.

“The sale of Tennant’s coatings business is our latest move in the ongoing implementation of our enterprise strategy—specifically, winning where we have competitive advantage,” said Chris Killingstad, Tennant CEO. “By divesting a business that is not central to our core strengths in industrial and commercial floor cleaning, we can redirect resources toward more strategic and profitable activities.”
