Benjamin Moore has just announced that it has inked a deal with Ace to become the hardware group’s premier paint supplier! You can see their announcement here:

In a significant change in how they manage and control their distribution, Benjamin Moore has made their premium Regal and ben lines available to any Ace dealer, regardless of their proximity to an existing Benjamin Moore retailer.

On Friday morning, Benjamin Moore Chairman and CEO Dan Calkins will appear with me on my “Mark, My Words” podcast to speak about this agreement and to share the paint manufacturer’s plans for the short and long-term as it relates to this agreement.

This is a significant bit of news for the otherwise sleepy independent channel. I will be back here tomorrow with my commentary on this change in the independent channel. You won’t want to miss it.
