The Rodda Paint Company was founded in 1932 by Arthur Rodda along with his first employee Thomas 'Morey' Braden in Portland, Oregon. Rodda is the largest regional paint company in the Pacific Northwest. Based in Portland, the company owns and operates 53 commercial and retail stores throughout Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana.[1]

History[edit]

In August 2004, Rodda Paint Co. merged with Cloverdale Paint, Inc in Surrey, British Columbia. At the time, Rodda had 41 retail stores.[2] Rodda signed a deal with Devine Color in May 2013 in which Rodda would distribute Devine's zero-VOC paint line.[3] The merged operation operates under the Rodda name in the United States and under the Cloverdale name in Canada. The company bought five Kelly-Moore Paints branded stores in July 2014, to increase the number of stores to 53.[1]
