Hirshfield’s Paint Manufacturing was a Minnesota pioneer in commercial paint recycling/reuse.
Helping our commercial wallcovering customers achieve their project’s environmental standards begins with offering product from manufacturers who share similar eco-objectives. From GreenGuard certified low-VOC emitting wallcoverings, sustainable woods and bamboos, PVC-free and recycled vinyl wallcoverings to LEED-compliant multi-color coatings, Hirshfield’s provides the specifier and end-user a full complement of commercial wall finishes. And helping our customers understand the complexities of compliance to the ever-changing standards is a natural extension of our service.
