Maroon was founded by Anthony P. Maroon in 1977 supplying specialty resins, additives, pigments, and packaging to customers in the paint & coatings, sealants & adhesives, and graphic arts industries. The company focused on providing value to its customers with a technical sales approach, a broad product portfolio, and just-in-time inventory management serviced by a fleet of delivery trucks.
As the customer base and product offerings continued to expand, the company broadened its geographic reach over the next three decades. During this period, the company expanded into new end markets such and developed its global sourcing model.
In 2002, the company transitioned ownership to Mark E. Reichard and Mark Maroon. Under their leadership, Maroon Group achieved exceptional growth becoming one of the largest distributor of specialty chemicals and ingredients in the United States. In 2014, the company partnered with CI Capital to accelerate their investments in the business. Since 2014, Maroon Group has completed multiple acquisitions, becoming a more diverse, sustainable and scalable company.
