The Shepherd Color Company is a fourth-generation, family-owned, global business dedicated to being a world-class producer of complex inorganic color pigments.

Our roots originate in the 1920s ceramics industry, where we supplied colors for porcelain enamels. By the early 1960s, our product line had expanded to a full range of complex inorganic color pigments for the premium coatings and plastics markets. Today, our products are used in many diverse applications, especially where performance is critical under the most extreme conditions.

In 1980, The Shepherd Color Company relocated to new and modern facilities in Cincinnati, Ohio. Our success has been built upon the fundamental belief that exemplary character, quality work and customized products brighten the lives of everyone involved.

From this location, as well as from sales offices in Brussels, Melbourne, Japan and China, we supply millions of pounds annually of high-quality pigments to customers around the world.
