"Maersk is a global leader in container-industry sustainability, and we are privileged to partner with them on this innovative coatings solution," said Roeland Polet, Valspar senior vice president, Global Industrial. "This is an important step, and we proudly put our 60-plus years of waterborne coatings expertise forward as a cost-effective, sustainable solution."
