 SHERWIN-WILLIAMS ACQUIRES CERTAIN BUSINESS UNITS
 FROM COOK PAINT AND VARNISH COMPANY
 CLEVELAND, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sherwin-Williams Company (NYSE: SHW), Cleveland, announced it has acquired the assets of the heavy duty protective coatings and the automotive coatings business units of the Cook Paint and Varnish Company, Kansas City, Mo. The purchase price was undisclosed.
 Sherwin-Willaims will maintain the Cook brand name and expand the tank linings, rail car and structural steel coatings business through its dedicated industrial maintenance sales organization. The acquisition will enhance the product and service offerings to current Sherwin-Williams and Cook industrial maintenance customers.
 Cook has been a long-term supplier of coatings to the automotive OEM and tier one supplier markets. Cook's automotive business unit will continue to be headquartered in Troy, Mich., and will become part of the expansion of the Sherwin-Williams Automotive Division's OEM business group.
 Employees associated with these Cook business units have become employees of The Sherwin-Williams Company. No manufacturing facilities were acquired in the transaction although a planned nine-month transition of manufacturing from Cook's plant to Sherwin-Williams' plants will be undertaken to insure continued product quality and high levels of customer service.
