The Minneapolis-based maker of paintings and coatings also reported a fourth consecutive year of double-digit earnings growth, and it's predicting a fifth, according to the Star Tribune.
"We overcame the challenge of uneven global markets by winning significant new business and through relentless focus on productivity," Gary Hendrickson, Valspar chairman and CEO, said in a news release. "We expect uneven global demand to continue, but we are well-positioned for growth in both our Coatings and Paints segments."
