WORLD-RENOWNED CUSTOM PAINTER  AND FOUNDER OF HOUSE OF KOLOR, JON KOSMOSKI JOINS THE SHOW! House of Kolor® was founded in 1956 by world-renowned custom painter, Jon Kosmoski. Jon had rebuilt a '40 Chevy Coupe and took it to the best paint shop in town. After having the car returned to him with a less than satisfactory paint job from the "best" shop in town, Jon knew it could be done better and decided to learn how. Jon quickly became well-known for his skills as a custom painter, however, he was displeased with the problematic nitrocellulose laquers and alkyd enamels of that day, which would sometimes sun-fade or cold-crack. Jon wanted something better ! Together with a doctor in polymer chemistry Jon set out to produce custom paints that wouldn't tarnish, crack or sun-fade, even in severe climates or radical temperature changes. In addition, it would withstand the many coats required for a custom job. When Jon's products and skills came together his paint jobs began to win awards, and people began to talk. Word spread and by 1965 House of Kolor® was nationally renowned as the high-caliber paint for customizing vehicles. In 1997 House of Kolor® became part of the Valspar Automotive Coatings Division. Jon continues to play an important role in House of Kolor®. He travels around the world conducting training classes, and continues to share his innovative ideas, helping to keep House of Kolor® on the leading edge of custom automotive coatings. House of Kolor® maintains its integrity and reputation as a leader in the custom coatings industry by using only the finest ingredients in the production of its award-winning paint products.
