ProFILE 2018 GARDCO, trade name of the Paul N. Gardner Co., Inc. and its products, proudly serve world commerce through the distribution, production and design of quality physical testing instruments for the paint, coatings and related industries. The Paul N. Gardner Company originated with the alliance of pioneer paint chemist Dr. Henry Alfred Gardner, Sr., Director of the Institute of Paint and Varnish Research in Washington, D.C. and his son Paul Norris Gardner in 1935. The Institute chemists at that time were active in the development and design of physical testing instruments for coating materials, which were then made available to the industry but not available to the public. The Henry A. Gardner Laboratory was established in Bethesda, Maryland, for that purpose. Significant developments were made with research into gloss and color technology by men such as Richard S. Hunter formerly from the then NBS. Paul eventually rose to the position of President and later Board Chairman of the Lab until 1962 when his decision to retire was made. Maintaining contact with the industry, Paul formed The Paul N. Gardner Company, Inc. in Maryland. The small company relocated to Florida where it flourishes reaching both domestic and world markets. Since the passing of Paul N. Gardner, Sr. in 1995, Paul N. Gardner, Jr. has assumed the Presidency of GARDCO. (GARDCO) Paul N. Gardner Company, Inc. 316 NE 1st Street, Pompano Beach, FL 33060 (800) 762-2478 Special Section
