With a manufacturing plant in Huron and its North American headquarters in Strongsville, AkzoNobel is vital to the economy of Ohio. AkzoNobel performs much of its research and development at its Strongsville facility.
It's there that they make sure every brand they manufacture is of the best quality. AkzoNobel's Decorative Paints products are used by millions of U.S. consumers each year.
They produce many popular brands including Glidden, Ralph Lauren Paint, Devoe, Flood, Sikkens and Liquid Nails.
