SPRING HILL — The Kansas Paint Company celebrated the opening of its new location at 208 S. Webster St. in Spring Hill with a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 6 sponsored by the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber members and friends celebrated with owners Brian and Stephanie Verbraken and their children, Noah and Alec.

Brian posted on the business’ website that his knowledge of the paint industry began to grow while he was in high school learning the trade. He attended college at the University of Northern Iowa and received a degree in Construction Management, learning business and estimating.

Upon graduation, he went to work for his father’s company as a painter, working his way into the office and eventually becoming vice president.

“In 2006, we sold the company, and I moved to Kansas City to begin my career with Sherwin-Williams as a commercial sales representative, which taught me the manufacturer’s side of the industry,” Brian said. “My passion for the paint industry and desire for more has driven me to enter back into the contracting side of the industry, where I feel I can make a difference.”
