The company began operations in September 1946 at 1010 North 19th Street, Tampa, Florida. The manufacturing plant, with over 130,000 square feet of completely automated facilities, included an alkyd resin plant, an aerosol packaging plant and a completely equipped and staffed research laboratory.
In October 1970, the company opened a manufacturing plant in Puerto Rico. HARRIS PAINTS in Puerto Rico has expanded during the past 40 years to keep pace with requirements of residential, commercial and industrial users, painting contractors and retail sales at paint dealers. Over 3,000,000 gallons and 6,000,000 aerosol cans of HARRIS PAINTS are produced annually to meet demand in its over 110,000 square feet facilities for local and export markets.
HARRIS PAINTS was acquired in June 1990 by THE BLANCO GROUP, which at the time, comprised of four paint-manufacturing companies. The group is presently the largest paint, adhesives, sealants and solvents manufacturer, supplier and distributor in the Caribbean, Southeastern US, and Central America with subsidiaries recently completed in Costa Rica and Orlando, Florida, and Santo Domingo. THE BLANCO GROUP has aggressively invested in a top Research and Development program that assures a leadership position in cutting-edge technology and innovation.
In 1990 the BLANCO GROUP was awarded by the government of Puerto Rico the prize of Exporter of the Year with customers in the mainland such as: The Home Depot, General Motors, Wal-Mart, Kmart and Sears. HARRIS PAINTS holds the only aerosol packaging facility for paints in the Southeastern U.S.
