The CIC Coatings Story

In 1992, Tom Huemiller founded Huemiller and Associates Inc., to develop exterior wood stain and sealant products under the brand Huemiller Stain. The following year, Superior Wood Care was launched to provide professional wood staining and sealing services to the Dallas/Fort Worth and other North Texas areas. In 2002 Gray Away Wood Savers (now Wood Savers) was acquired. And Exterior Wood Savers was acquired in 2019. Both Superior Wood Care and Wood Savers are staffed with professionals who are experts in maintaining the beauty of exterior wood through restoration and sealing using custom-blended Huemiller Superior Wood Stains and Sealants.

In 2009, Specialty Coatings/Fluidaire Inc., an industry-leading manufacturer and vendor of specialty coatings in Arlington, Texas, was added to the fold. With the company’s assets, Mr. Huemiller co-founded CIC Coatings, LLC with Miles Wooley (our Chief Engineering Officer) in McKinney, Texas. CIC is an environmentally friendly, custom industrial, wood and specialty coatings manufacturer specializing in water-based and solvent-based coatings that provide ground-breaking solutions for any coatings needs.

In 2019, Sunlite Sales, LLC, of Miami, Florida was acquired. Sunlite Sales offers exceptional coating solutions for an extensive array of industrial, architectural, consumer and commercial products.

In 2020, Tom founded TM Cypress Products, LLC and entered in a joint venture with Humane Choice, LLC to form Cleaner Lives, LLC. TM Cypress began producing effective, green cleaners and sanitizers to help meet the high demand brought on by COVID-19. Cleaner Lives combines those quality, eco-friendly products with tools and equipment to deliver comprehensive, easy-to-use sanitization programs for facilities to help us all get back to school, work, and life.
