Evercoat began as Fibre-Glass Evercoat in 1953, when our first formulations were developed in Cincinnati and sold throughout the US, primarily to the marine market. Shortly after 1953, we recognized the need for good quality primers and fillers for the automotive aftermarket and began marketing Evercoat products designed for use on automotive body repair. Today Evercoat is the #1 preferred brand of body filler and putty found in professional collision centers.

In 1995 ITW acquired Evercoat. ITW (Illinois Tool Works) is a Fortune 500 Company listed on the NYSE.
