Conroe, Texas, USA –

The Jones-Blair product range has returned to its roots after being part of the global Hempel brand for the last three years. Today, Hempel announced the return of its iconic Jones-Blair brand with a refreshed brand identity, logo, and website.

Jones-Blair is broadly specified across Oil & Gas and Industrial markets and is recognized for high-performance, high-gloss, corrosion-resistant coatings. With over 90 years of proven performance in the field, Jones-Blair has been a trusted partner for owners and applicators.

Todd Cottrell, Hempel Vice President, Americas comments: "We are very pleased to announce the return of the Jones-Blair brand to the North American market. Jones-Blair is widely specified and well known across oil and gas and industrial markets. We've been listening to our customers, heard they wanted the Jones-Blair brand to return and today, Jones-Blair is back."

Hempel acquired US-based Jones-Blair in 2015 and integrated it into Hempel's more extensive brand portfolio in 2017. Hempel also acquired Jones-Blair's Neogard brand, a US-based manufacturer of high-performance coatings which protect the building envelope through vehicular and pedestrian traffic coatings, protective roof coatings, seamless flooring, and elastomeric wall coatings.

Announced today in a separate news release is the intent to partner with National Coatings & Supplies (NCS) as the exclusive national distributor of the Jones-Blair product range.
