MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 14, 2018--
Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling
equipment, is proud to commemorate 60 years of airless innovation and
the 60th anniversary of its first airless paint sprayer. The
Hydra-Spray, introduced in 1958, revolutionized the professional
painting industry. For the first time, paint could be sprayed without
the use of atomizing air or heating up the material.
Not only did the introduction of the Hydra-Spray lead to dramatic
overspray reductions, more even paint coverage, less paint “bounce back”
and significant equipment simplification, but it also served as an
introduction to a long and rich history of Graco airless spray
innovations. Graco has spent the last six decades continuing to innovate
to improve and make advancements to its airless sprayer and airless
accessory offering, equipping end users with the best, most dependable
and job-site ready sprayers available on the market today.
Graco intends to mark this milestone in many ways throughout 2018 and
has created a webpage featuring a timeline of significant airless
innovations over the last 60 years, stories from contractors who rely on
Graco every day, and a variety of promotional programs for its valued
end-user customers. Visit www.graco.com/60yearsairless
