Dear Mr. ________
There are many changes taking place at The Testor Corporation. For over 80 years, we have provided premium paints and finishing systems to the craft and hobby industry. Recently we announced that we are transforming our business in order to more effectively address the changing needs of our consumers and their interests.
We’ve made the decision to exit the following businesses within the Testor Brand family – Pactra , Floquil , PollyScale , and ColorArtz. This will enable The Testor Corporation to return to our foundation of success providing premium, innovative product that inspires creativity. We will continue to accept orders and ship product for a limited time based on available quantities.
Going forward, the following brands will be critical to our success and development – Testor , Model Master , and Aztek. These brands will be infused with marketing support, innovation and operational efficiencies.
In support of this, we have announced a consolidation of operations at our Rockford facilities. Our commitment to the Testor brand has never been stronger. By implementing these changes, and the ability to leverage all of Rust-Oleum’s world class services, we are more strongly poised to take our business to the next level through product and merchandising
innovations, and increased customer understanding.
If you have further questions, please feel free to let us know.
We appreciate your business!!
