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

Our Davis Colors Granulated PigmentsWe’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.


Davis Colors is part of Oxerra Americas, LLC, a global leader in iron oxide pigment. Our distribution networks and worldwide divisional offices coupled with the state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities enable us to deliver the best quality iron oxide pigments, ingredients and raw materials. Without our pigments and products, the world would be a very different place. Our products are used as intelligent ingredients in thousands of everyday items including coatings, plastics, cosmetics, paper, pharmaceuticals, fibers, films, inks, catalysts, concrete and building materials to name a few.


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.
