Easterday & Company, Inc. - A History
David E. Easterday & Company
was born in 1972. At this time Dave Easterday, with the help
of his wife, Valeria was working solely as a painting contractor,
painting houses and commercial facilities. Gradually, Dave
added employees to help him in his growing business. Eventually,
Easterday & Company
became one of the most successful painting contractors
in the area, expanding from Wooster, Ohio to the East Coast.
Years later, the still young company, began, not only painting,
but selling paint as well.
In 1992 we found ourselves needing
to blend our Pratt & Lambert
stains to match current colors in our customers’ homes
because, at that time, custom stain matches were not available
to us. This commodity developed into what is now Woodwright® Original
Easy Wipe Stain, which is the most sought-after, user-friendly
formula in the area.
At that time, we were manufacturing
our own stains, but still using and distributing another
varnish. Working together with our varnish supplier, we
helped improve their current products to work better in
our market, but David was still not satisfied. The quality
of this varnish was not acceptable. Dave decided that there
was no other choice but for our company to make our own.
In 1994, Dave started concocting numerous conversion varnish
blends. Finally, with the 7th formula, he hit the mark.
This conversion varnish had a “silky” feel,
great durability, high solids and an incredible build.
Easterday & Company now had their Woodwright® System
#7 Conversion Varnish. System #7 became an industry standard
and led to our current full-line of conversion and precatalyzed
Easterday & Company believes
in 5 things: Strength in God, our Family Bond, Hard Work,
Great Service to our Valued Customers and Honoring our
Commitments. We are a company of few employees, but these
employees are our family who have a passion for what
they do and the products we manufacture. This is what
drives our success.
