Maroon History

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.

Maroon attributes its success to a team that believes in and reinforce Tony's philosophy of Creating Customer Success®. With an unwavering focus on service as the key element of its business model, Maroon Group is an industry leader with a commitment to quality, safety and compliance. Maroon Group is well entrenched with its supplier and customer relationships, including many long-term customers who have been working with us since 1977.
