Over six decades of quality and community

Bob & Harry Strothkamp

For Bob and Harry Strothkamp, perfection comes in selling quality products and offering expert advice. Their company, Strothkamp’s Paint, is proud to be an independent Benjamin Moore paint retailer serving the St. Louis County area.

Strothkamp’s Paint delivers specialized help and attention to detail, and their trained specialists’ experience and advice ensure the success of every project you have. They also offer wallpaper, a complete line of sundries, equipment rentals and interior design assistance.

Bob and Harry opened their first paint store on Manchester Road in 1956, and in the 61 years since, they’ve weathered competition from other paint stores, big box retailers and the internet. Bob says his company’s success is easy to understand.

“We’re paint people,” he explains. “There’s a difference between paint people and people that sell paint. People that sell paint really are not geared to be paint people. They know what’s in the books. But I was a painter, my brother was a painter, and my dad was a painter, so we’ve learned how to sell paint by being professional painters.”

The Strothkamps have made family an integral part of their company. Most of their family members either have worked or continue to work in the business. As one of West St. Louis County’s longest surviving small businesses, with more than 60 years of success, their commitment to community is clear.

All are invited to visit their new location on Manchester Road in Ballwin, by Steak ‘n Shake and Hobby Lobby.
