ORLANDO, Fla. -- Lanco Paints, Inc., based in Orlando, is now a master distributor of a large selection of Milesi Italian wood coatings, according to a joint announcement released by the companies.

The new distribution agreement marks the first time these two companies have partnered to offer wood finishing products to professional woodworkers, cabinetmakers, and millwork producers.

Lanco Paints services customers in Florida, offering technical support, custom color matching, and a team of finishing specialists. The Milesi line includes two-component (2K) polyurethanes, polyesters, water-based interior and exterior finishes, natural look finishes, high gloss wet look finishes, UV, stains, and more.
