Anchored for Wear

Anchor Paint started from humble beginnings. Brothers Emerson and Roy Fowler were two talented chemists who also had the unique ability to engineer and build manufacturing machinery. The brothers saw a need in the market for high-quality industrial coatings, architectural house paint, spray equipment, and associated sundries.

The Fowler brothers and their two wives, Wanda and Annie, founded Anchor Paint Mfg. Co. in 1962. The two couples worked hard to get Anchor Paint off the ground—Emerson headed up sales, Roy ran production, Annie handled office administration, and Wanda managed the financials.

Their hard work, sacrifice, and dedication paid off. Within three years, they outgrew their original location and moved to a bigger facility where the current headquarters of Anchor Paint currently resides at 6707 E. 14th St. in Tulsa, Ok.
