The collaboration goes into effect immediately for customers in Paintzen's active metropolitan markets, such as New York and San Francisco.

All of Paintzen's painting contractors are insured and have undergone background checks, and the company has a full team of project managers at the ready to guarantee job completion and satisfaction.
"When it comes to providing customers with an absolute premium painting service, we know that the products used are just as important as the people completing the job. For that reason, we couldn't be more excited to be exclusively offering paint and paint products from the most beloved brand in the industry," said Paintzen Co-Founder and CEO, Mike Russell. "This partnership is also exciting for Benjamin Moore's network of independently owned and operated local retailers who will directly benefit from this order and sales process."
