Benjamin Moore & Painting Contractors Association Join Forces to Combat COVID-19
MONTVALE, NJ – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Benjamin Moore®, North America’s most popular paint, paint and coating brand, has partnered with the Painting Contractors Association (PCA) to pay the cost of attending the association’s Operation COVID-19 Response Conference. As a founding sponsor of this initiative, Benjamin Moore is committed to helping painting companies and small businesses cope with the changes in the industry caused by COVID-19.
“With a changing economy and tough choices for painters, we want to make sure they have access to top resources like PCA’s Operation COVID-19 Response,” said Craig Bunting, Benjamin Moore, director of customer segment marketing. “With our monetary contribution, both PCA members and non-members can participate in this program free of charge. Painting companies play an important role in transforming communities as well as supporting the independent retail channel. We are here to help you keep doing it. ”
Starting April 7th, PCA’s eight-week online conference will provide a range of education opportunities, strategies, and resources business owners need to make informed decisions, stabilize profits, and protect their team. Balancing the fees associated with virtual training will help ease a financial hurdle for many painters and their businesses during this time.
“Benjamin Moore’s generous donation to the Painting Contractors Association as a founding partner in the PCA COVID-19 response effort comes at a critical time,” said Nigel Costolloe, PCA National Executive Director. “This substantial donation will help PCA continue to focus on providing educational resources and ongoing support to painting companies that are struggling to support not only their own families but those of their employees as well.”
The promise made by the old paint brand to painting companies, which has been a sponsor of the PCA for more than 30 years, is also reflected in their newly launched “See the Love” advertising campaign. It shows the builders’ commitment and love for the craft and at the same time celebrates these professionals for whom painting is not just a job, but a passion.
