Through this partnership, the PPG Paints brand will help protect and beautify the historic landmark with more than 300 gallons of premium paint sold through Complete Paint & Supplies, a PPG Paints independent retailer serving the greater Northern Michigan area.
Under the direction of Grand Hotel’s local professional paint contractor, the hotel will be coated with premium PPG Paints brand products, such as MANOR HALL® Interior Paint, Primer & Stain Repellant in One.
“The PPG Paints brand is proud to be the paint provider to Grand Hotel, a true masterpiece of Mackinac Island,” said Tom Dougherty, PPG marketing director, architectural coatings. “With vibrant colors, a broad and deep product line, expertise and the professional service of Complete Paint & Supplies, we’re sure that PPG will help maintain the brilliance of Grand Hotel.”
Dan Musser III, president, Grand Hotel, said,“Grand Hotel is confident that by partnering with the world’s leading coatings company, we’ll be able to protect the beautiful history of Grand Hotel for years to come.”
The project, which began in December 2015, involves many rich and vibrant shades, as no two of the 390 rooms in Grand Hotel are the same. From soothing lilacs to deep reds to cheerful yellows, PPG’s expert color tools will create custom matches for 38 colors from the hotel’s existing palette.
“We’re honored to supply the paint that will help provide the unique, one-of-a-kind experience that Grand Hotel offers its guests,” said Don Thompson, store manager, Complete Paint & Supplies in Harbor Springs.
