Since 1925, Dunn-Edwards Corporation has been the leading manufacturer and supplier of architectural and industrial coatings in the Southwest, providing a complete line of paints and painting supplies to professionals and quality-conscious consumers.
Frank “Buddy” Dunn founded the company in 1925, not as a paint maker but as a wallpaper store in Los Angeles. The business expanded as he added a line of paints, and later (with two employees) he began manufacturing his own paints in the backroom of the company’s second store.
In 1938, he partnered with his friend Arthur C. Edwards, a former painting contractor and pigment salesman, to form the Dunn-Edwards Corporation. Sales immediately improved, and a business philosophy was born: “Make the finest line of paint and give the best service at fair prices.” It’s a philosophy that endures through this day.
Firmly rooted in the United States since 1925, Dunn-Edwards Paints ®began a small, family-owned business that — through hard work and commitment to quality — has grown to become one of the country's largest independent manufacturers and distributors of paints and painting supplies.
We dedicate ourselves to providing professionals and consumers throughout the Southwest with a complete line of the highest-quality, best-value paints, painting supplies and equipment — as well as superior service. And we do it with pride.
From Staples Center Arena and the Wynn and Encore resorts, to Arizona State University and the San Francisco Federal Courthouse — landmark after landmark across the Southwest is painted with one brand: Dunn-Edwards. Why? Simply, it’s the highest-quality paint available.
Dunn-Edwards paints have been chosen for a significant number of LEED or NAHB-certified green buildings. The LEED green building certification program is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of green buildings. The NAHB’s National Green Building Standard is a residential green building rating system that received American National Standards Institute approval.

I have been working at Dunn-Edwards full-time
Great coworkers and management staff
Hard to get promoted. Too much politics.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dunn-Edwards in August 2015.
Found the job through a friend. Sent an email to manager and got a call back within a few hours. She scheduled an in person interview the next day and I was hired immediately.
They asked what I would like to be payed and I said I'm open to negotiation. They offered a fair amount and I didn't object.
