A History of Davis Colors And Our Concrete Pigment BusinessThat was Then


Anything that can be made with concrete can be colored with Davis Colors. Think of the possibilities. We did, or rather, Frank Davis did in 1952 when he founded the Davis Colors Company with a simple guiding philosophy:


“Color is Light, Light is Life, Color is Life.” 
– Frank D. Davis 1952




This Is Now

Davis Colors Chemist Pouring Granufin Concrete Pigment GranulesWe’re the kind of company that specializes in something you probably never heard of unless you’re into concrete or construction. We make the color that goes into concrete and concrete products.


Today, Davis Colors is part of a much larger company dedicated to the same vision Mr. Davis had: putting a little color into every square inch of concrete in the world. Davis Colors is part of Venator Materials Corporation. We manufacture color pigments in factories around the world and install and service automated pigment handling systems used by the leading manufacturers of concrete products, coatings, colorants, plastics, rubber, paper, vinyl, cosmetics, pet food, ink, toner and more.


But, just like in the old days, the Davis Colors brand is focused on providing the US concrete industry with the widest variety and highest quality pigments with the same friendly service Frank D. Davis provided.
