Our History

Founded in 1995, Single Source, Inc. has accomplished many milestones. We began as a single line ICI distributor and became a single line PPG distributor after the 1999 acquisition. In 2007 Single Source won PPG Platinum Distributor of the year. In addition to our Platinum award, SSI has racked up a number of accolades including Platinum Plus Achievement seven times, Strategic Shop Win Challenge Award five times, and additional honors and achievements.

As the industry began to evolve we sought more opportunities in other markets. In 2013, we launched our Industrial Coatings division. In this division we aimed to provide paint and services needed for a broad range of commercial market applications. We supply coatings for equipment and extensive uses to include tractor-trailers, boats, oil fields, watercraft airplanes, construction, and heavy industrial equipment.
