Hirshfield’s Paint Manufacturing
This week, more than a full shipping container of Hirshfield’s Platinum Exterior Flat 5790 was produced, filled and packed for shipping overseas to China. Development of business relationships outside Hirshfield’s traditional markets is a growing side of HPM.
HPM’s Paul, Mark, Charlie and Nick (on top of paint) take a break before securing the paint for the ground trip to the west coast ports where the container will be loaded on a seabound freighter.
The paint order beginning its journey to a commercial project in China.
Here’s a three-minute tour of the Hirshfield’s Paint Factory.
Since we’re talking China here’s an exhibit opening next week at the Nash which piqued my interest.
A special collection of photographs from Chinese artists will be on view at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery on the University of Minnesota’s West Bank campus beginning August 2, 2011. Visit www.nash.umn.edu for more information.
