What does BEHR mean?
- Behr Process Corporation is one of the largest suppliers of architectural paint and exterior wood care products to the United States and Canadian do-it-yourself markets. BEHR manufactures interior house paints, exterior house paints, decorative finishes, primers, stains and surface preparation products, which are sold exclusively at The Home Depot. Behr was founded in 1947 when Otho Behr, Jr. began selling linseed oil wood stains to paint stores from the back of his woody station wagon. When the stores began asking for a redwood stain, Behr approached his father, an accomplished chemist, to develop the formula. He did, and the resulting growth of the business led Behr to move the company’s operations to an 800 square foot Quonset hut in Pasadena, California in 1948.The business quickly outgrew this facility as well, and in the early 1950s Behr relocated the company to its current home in Santa Ana, CA. Behr was one of the first suppliers to Home Depot when that chain opened in 1978, and the company has grown dramatically ever since as the booming home resale market created greater demand for paints, lighting, wallpaper and other goods. BEHR has been named “Partner of the Year” by The Home Depot ten times.
