Dear Teknicolors Fan,
Thank you for taking the time to view our web site today. In 1997, after 20 years in the paint business, I headed out with the goal to bring back the old-time service I had seen fall away in the retail paint industry by opening the first Teknicolors in Birmingham, Michigan. I am pleased to say that we have succeeded! What sets us apart is our sincere desire to see all of our customer’s projects succeed; from the contractor who is painting a large industrial warehouse to the homeowner who needs to paint a mudroom. The greatest reward is when a customer comes back and tells us how well their project turned out. Our experienced, well-trained staff is fantastic at discovering the paint needs of each customer and helping arrange the products and services needed to complete this project in the best and most cost-effective manner. After 20 years in business, I am proud to say that Teknicolors and our staff will go the extra mile to satisfy our customers like none before! It is always our pleasure to work with you on your next paint project, big or small.
