SANTA ANA, Calif., March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Behr Process Corporation, an experienced and trusted provider of paint and coatings, today announced that Behr has teamed up with  City of Meadows Place, Texas to help paint the town, reinforcing the city's commitment to maintaining a picturesque environment for residents and visitors. Through this partnership, Behr will be supporting the city's initiative to use Behr paint throughout its community by supplying exterior paint for 10 residential homes, paint and labor for three of those homes, and expert counsel on local contractors, among other painting resources.

"Behr is proud to partner with City of Meadows Place," said Joe Richardson, senior vice president of professional products and services for Behr Process Corporation. "We're honored that an exemplary city such as City of Meadows Place has selected our quality painting products as the official paint standard for its building exteriors. We are happy that we can help the city create and maintain a distinct and exceptional community through building preservation and aesthetic updates."  

"We are implementing Behr's exterior products and colors as our city's paint standard, because for many years Behr has been one of the most recognizable and trusted paint brands in North America," said Charles Jessup, mayor of City of Meadows Place. "The City of Meadows Place is committed to increasing and protecting residential property values by creating a city ordinance specifying the color combinations listed in the Behr Exterior Color Card as the pre-approved standard for all homes within the city. This is a family-oriented city, and we will continue to preserve its overall ambience and functionality by incorporating initiatives that keep our town safe and attractive for generations to come."

Each respective owner of the selected homes will be given the option to paint their homes' exteriors with BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Exterior Paint or BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Exterior Paint. The award-winning BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA was developed using advanced Nanoguard® technology and doubles as a paint and primer in one. Both of these high-performance paints offer superior adhesion and maximum protection against damage from sunlight, moisture, stains and dirt.

In celebration of the new partnership, Behr will be sponsoring a kick-off party for the residents of City of Meadows Place on Saturday, March 26, 2011 at the Meadows Place Community Center from noon to 3 p.m. CDT.
