Gemini Coatings, an employee-owned wood coatings manufacturing company, will acquire Lenmar® Wood Finishes & Coatings, a line of wood finishes, from Benjamin Moore.

“Lenmar has been a trusted brand in the wood coatings market for more than 65 years and has grown its loyal customer base since it was acquired by Benjamin Moore in 2008,” said Chris Hicks, president and CEO of Gemini Coatings. “We already have many established relationships with the Benjamin Moore network with our well-known product portfolio and are excited to add the Lenmar brand to the Gemini family of products.”

According to the company, the acquisition of Lenmar further enforces Gemini’s mission of providing exceptional service, reliable product quality and trusted expertise. Gemini says by purchasing Lenmar, it will be better positioned to deliver a world-class customer experience through its dedicated employee-owners’ focus on the wood coatings market.

“Wood coatings is our specialty,” said Hicks. “This acquisition will enable current Lenmar customers to keep exclusive access to the products they have come to rely on, combined with Gemini’s sharply focused sales and technical teams and broader product offering. With this acquisition, Gemini will expand its market share and drive efficiencies in our manufacturing plants.”
