The Core Purpose

To improve the world around us through our commitment to GREATness.

We want to continually improve.  If we rest, we rust!  We want to leave our children in a better place than we started out.  “Improving” is preserving the core business but stimulating progress for the future.

What is the “world” we touch?  It might be small – maybe it is just one other person, it could be our fellow team members, our direct customers, our dealers and distributors, our local community, our state, country or possibly the world.

We are “committed to GREATness” – Good is the enemy of Great.  Ask any of our team members why we believe good enough never is.  We never settle for good enough, we want to be GREAT!

All of us on the Anchor team realize we sail together on the same boat. As such, we don’t work at meeting customer expectations, we work to exceed them.

Anchor Products

We start from the premise, “Customers deserve the highest quality products”.  The technical laboratory strives to develop innovative coating formulations, evaluating both on-site and through third-party labs around the country in order to continually improve on our time-tested formulas. Not only do we test on-site to provide coatings best suited to withstand our sometimes violent, unpredictable Oklahoma weather, we also realize our national and international sales may require performance in a multitude of service environments. Therefore, our products are also tested in climates such as southern Florida and the Northeast United States. Anchor products excel in weather resistance, durability, color retention, gloss retention, stain resistance and other significant performance criteria.
