Zinsser was founded on these principles in 1849 and has remained true to its original charter for more than 150 years.
Zinsser was founded by William Zinsser (pictured below) in 1849. In its long history, Zinsser has established itself as a brand associated with unique, problem-solving products that address the needs of professional contractors and DIYers.
Innovation
From the introduction of shellac to the US market in the mid-1800s to the development of a full line of high-performance primers, wallcovering products and coatings for the long-term prevention of mould and mildew, Zinsser has been on the cutting edge of innovation, creating new products - and new product categories - to meet the needs of contractors and exceed their expectations for quality and performance.
William Zinsser
The company has been responsible for many industry firsts: B-I-N®, the first shellac-based primer-sealer; Bulls Eye® 1-2-3, the first water-based universal primer; DIF®, the first commercial solution for wallcovering removal and Perma-White®, the first mould and mildew-proof paint. More recently, Zinsser launched Bulls-Eye 123 Plus - a water-based primer delivering performance previously only seen in solvent-based primers - reflecting its ongoing commitment to innovation.
...
Zinsser has earned a reputation as a company that listens to contactors and develops new products - or adds features to existing products - to meet their changing needs.
That's why Zinsser has expanded its primer technology to include new high-performance, low VOC primer-sealers; leads the industry in the development of products that improve wallpaper hanging and removal; and is constantly researching and developing new products for the long-term prevention of mould and mildew.
At Zinsser we deliver world class products that meet "real world" challenges, providing tried and tested solutions to painting problems. Our patented B-I-N primer (pictured below), for example, has never been matched or bettered!
We remain true to the traditions of innovation and quality established by our founder, William Zinsser: to develop problem-solving products that people can depend on. By sticking to these principles we have made Zinsser the primer of choice for the professional painter.

The History of ZINSSER
In 1849, William Zinsser immigrated from Germany to New York and set up the United State's first shellac beaching plant on Manhattan's west side. He founded his new company, William Zinsser & Co., Inc., on the principals of quality and innovation. The company has remained true to these principals for over 150 years.
Zinsser's commitment to quality was evident early on. In 1853, Zinsser's first shellac product, White French Varnish, received a First Premium Award at the International Exhibit in Philadelphia. The company's solutions of shellac in alcohol - Bulls Eye Shellac - quickly became popular as the first quick-drying clear wood finishes in the country. "Bulls Eye" and "Zinsser" became synonymous with "top quality".
Zinsser also earned industry recognition as a product innovator, creating new products - and new product categories - to meet the needs of professionals and do-it-yourselfers. The company's many "firsts" include B-I-N, the first shellac-base primer sealer; Bulls Eye 1-2-3®, the first water-base universal primer; DIF®, the first commercial solution for wallcovering removal; SHIELDZ™, the first wallcovering primer; and PERMA-WHITE®, the first mould & mildew-proof paint.
Zinsser remained a family business until 1986 when it was acquired by RPM, Inc. Operating as a subsidiary of RPM, the company continued to grow. Zinsser's growth was also fueled by a number of key acquisitions, including Wolman Wood Care Products (1994), Zehrung (1997), Modern Masters (2001) WalWorks (2002), Parks Corp. (2002) and OKON (2005). In 2005, Zinsser joined forces with Rust-Oleum Corporation to form the Rust-Oleum/Zinsser Group, a powerhouse of consumer, professional and industrial speciality paint and coatings brands.
Today, Zinsser manufactures and markets a comprehensive line of high-performance primers, wallcovering installation and removal products, wood finishes, concrete and masonry products, decorative finishes and products for the long-term prevention of mould and mildew.
