Saginaw, Mich. — Florida-based Anvil Paints & Coatings, Inc. — sister company of Duro-Last, Inc. — has joined the John R. Burt Enterprises family of companies.

Since 1967, Anvil has been manufacturing premium quality coatings and specialty paints, offering products for industrial roofs, concrete surfaces, wall textures and other surfaces. Anvil’s line of liquid roof coating products enhances the collection of commercial roofing solutions provided by sister company Duro-Last®, Inc., offering customers additional options dedicated to roof maintenance and upkeep.

“We’re excited to grow the Anvil business that has been built over the last 50 years,” says Kurt Schwahn, president of Anvil Paints & Coatings. “The Anvil brand is an excellent fit with Duro-Last and its sister companies, allowing for entry into new markets with new products.”

While now a member of John R. Burt Enterprises, Anvil will continue to support current customers within their key categories, as well as increased opportunities with Duro-Last.

“Anvil’s historical quality and excellence in elastomeric and silicone roof coatings is a great addition to our current product line and will provide our customers with a wider selection of roofing solutions,” says Duro-Last CEO Tom Saeli. “We’re eager to incorporate Kurt’s leadership as we continue to grow.”
