McPhillips Street Paint in North Winnipeg Offers Sansin’s Low-VOC, High-Performance Wood Finishes to Manitobans

Strathroy, Ontario, Canada – September 7, 2022 – The Sansin Corporation, a global leader in environmentally friendly, high-performance wood protection, has welcomed another store to its dealer network – McPhillips Street Paint. Located at 2401 McPhillips St., Building 7 in Winnipeg, the store has started carrying the full line of Sansin’s interior and exterior low-VOC wood finishes.

Kenneth Tough, Outside Sales Representative at McPhillips Street Paint, had previously worked with Sansin products and lobbied for McPhillips’ management to bring in Sansin when he started working at the store. “Our clients expect us to have the highest-quality paint and finishes in the industry, and Sansin’s water-borne technology is simply the best in class,” said Tough. “For our area, the biggest problem is traditional oil finishes that start peeling within a year, but since Sansin penetrates into the wood it doesn’t chip or peel, which makes it much more durable and easier to maintain.”

Tough said that McPhillips is conveniently located for homeowners and contractors in North Winnipeg and also for cottage owners in outlying areas of northern Manitoba. “People come in on their way up to their cottages and ask for water-borne stain, and it just makes sense to take care of that market with a premium product like Sansin,” Tough added. 

McPhillips Street Paint offers Sansin’s full line of exterior (SDF, DEC, ENS, Classic 1-2-3) and interior (Purity Stain, Purity Glacier, Purity Clear, and Purity Floor) finishes in a range of rich color options.

“We’re pleased to see that our reputation and Ken’s confidence in our products led to this collaboration,” said Caroline March-Long, Sansin’s Director of Sales & Marketing. “McPhillips’ customers expect only the best service and products, and Sansin delivers with wood finishes that offer superior wood protection that is durable, beautiful and easy to maintain.”
