WOOSTER, Ohio, Jan. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- They say things get better with age. This year, The Wooster Brush Company will celebrate 165 years of being a leading manufacturer in the paint applicator industry.

Established in 1851, Wooster Brush founder Adam Foss started the business by handmaking brushes and selling them door-to-door in Wooster, Ohio, where the company's headquarters are still located today. Now in 2016, Wooster Brush encompasses over 888,000 square feet of manufacturing, shipping, administrative, and warehousing facilities.

Wooster Brush's major influence on the paint applicator industry is due to their tradition of innovation. Each year, Wooster designs thoughtful new products for professional and DIY painters. Over 200 SKUs were added to Wooster's catalog since 2011. A few recent examples include the Lock Jawtool holder, Jumbo-Koter® Pipe Painter, and the Sherlock® Bucket-Tray paint container, which all simplified project challenges with their unique designs.

Changes in the coatings market have also led to improvement and originality in Wooster paint applicators. Super/Fab® FTP and Pro/Doo-Z® FTProllers (made with exclusive HydroFlow technology), along with the full line of Chinex® FTPpaintbrushes, were introduced to produce the best results with today's paints. The FTP brand is just one category that demonstrates Wooster's drive to lead the industry, as well as their commitment to ingenuity.

No Wooster product could have been successful without the company's great people and patrons. Wooster's 550 employees come to work every day to guarantee that customers get the solution for any painting challenge that they may encounter. In honor of this milestone anniversary, The Wooster Brush Company would like to say "Thank you!" to everyone who has chosen a Wooster tool over the last 165 years.
