For more than a century, sign painters and artists across the country have trusted the Ronan name for consistency and quality in specialty finishes.

The company’s roots date back to 1889, when Thomas J. Ronan first made a name for himself as a paint salesman. Over time, he developed his technical knowledge and became an expert in varnishes and finely-ground pigments.

Mr. Ronan co-founded The Egan-Ronan-Hausman Co., where he continued to cultivate his expertise in new areas of the paint business. After several years with that firm, he moved on and established the TJ Ronan Paint Company, specializing in coatings for artists, automobiles and industrial uses.


A century later, Ronan Paints is recognized as a leader in lettering enamel and bulletin enamel for sign painters, as well as water-based coatings, Superfine Japan Colors, faux finishes and other specialty paint products. The company continues to introduce new technologies and more modern materials while staying true to the tried-and-tested formulas that made the Ronan name what it is today.
