About Vermont Natural Coatings
The well-known dangers that traditional oil-based wood finishes pose to indoor air quality and human health have given rise to safer solutions. However, products developed to meet the call to improve air quality came with an undesirable dip in performance. In response, Vermont Natural Coatings manufactures PolyWhey®, professional wood finish made green.
Vermont Natural Coatings founder and president, Andrew Meyer, recognized the need for a better wood finish and Vermont’s capacity to fulfill that need. Meyer grew up in Hardwick on an organic dairy farm in the heart of Vermont’s agricultural industry. Armed with an Environmental Science degree from the University of Vermont and entrepreneurial skill fostered through a decade of experience in agricultural and environmental policy development, Meyer built the facility and business that creates PolyWhey coatings.
Vermont Natural Coatings collaborated with a University of Vermont team of chemists, and through dedicated research and innovation, developed a better product that meets the market’s performance demands and directly fulfills the Green Building industry’s needs. Through the use of recycled whey proteins, Vermont Natural Coatings has created professional products to make application safer for workers and healthier for all.
Vermont Natural Coatings’ overarching business vision involves using local resources and Vermont craftsmanship to create high quality products. High quality means not only well made, but also environmentally sustainable and economically viable.
