The Purdy story begins in 1925 when S. Desmond Purdy began building paint
brushes in a converted 2-car garage in Oregon. His unswerving, uncompromising
dedication to quality and excellence continue today. He was a man of strong
principle, who believed that handcrafting the finest painting tools may take a
little longer. But he knew it was the only way to "build in" the characteristics
and properties that assure superior coverage and unsurpassed performance that
can only be found in Purdy tools.
