The Dutch Boy Group is a paint manufacturing company currently headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. Founded in 1907 by the National Lead Company, the Dutch Boy Paints brand is currently a subsidiary of the Consumer Group division of the Sherwin-Williams Company, which acquired it in 1980, two years after the CPSC's directive banning on the manufacturing of lead housepaint went into effect.

Dutch Boy offers paints and paint products for both interior and exterior surfaces, including walls, ceilings, floors, porches, siding, and trim.

Logo/Trademark[edit]
