Automotive refinish distributor Painters Supply & Equipment Co. (PSE) recently announced the acquisition of Potter Color and Supply, a paint distributor based in Cambridge City, IN. Potter Color and Supply has been supplying the automotive refinish and industrial coatings markets in since 1985.

“We’re pleased to welcome the Potter team to the PSE family,” said Patrick Mayette, president of PSE. “We’re excited to expand into the great state of Indiana.”

“PSE has a long history and solid reputation as one of the best automotive refinish and industrial paint distributors in the U.S.,” said Jim Potter, owner of Potter Color and Supply. “They will strengthen us to better serve our local market from a technology, product and customer service standpoint.”

With the acquisition, Taylor, MI-based PSE now operates 21 store locations throughout Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. Mayette said PSE plans to continue expanding. As the industry continues to consolidate, acquisitions throughout the Midwest region of the U.S. will be a key element to the company’s growth initiatives.
