A History of Innovation

Founded in 1888, Toledo, Ohio physician Dr. Allen DeVilbiss combined a bulb, some tubing, and the base of an oil can to create the first atomizer for health care. In 1907, Thomas DeVilbiss, an inventor in his own right, experimented with adapting the original atomizer to create a spray gun to meet the challenges of spray finishing. Mass production was beginning to evolve, and Thomas DeVilbiss' spray gun technology proved to be a revolutionary addition to the paint and lacquer coating applications on furniture and automotive finishing. Spraying the material reduced drying time to hours instead of weeks, and the spraying of paint replaced hand brushing, helping to increase productivity.

DeVilbiss Automotive Refinishing

DeVilbiss Automotive Refinishing, one of Carlisle Fluid Technologies brands, has maintained its commitment to innovative technology. Using the same type of tools used to develop Nascar combustion engines, combined with our state-of-the-art manufacturing machinery, we continue developing advanced spray gun technology for the automotive refinishing market. Our equipment provides excellent atomization of high-solid materials producing glass-like finishes. DeVilbiss equipment is optimized to eliminate mottling and striping with metallic basecoats and delivers an ideal color match.

To this day, DeVilbiss continues to set the standard for spray finishing through its research and development, innovative product line, and commitment to customer service. We provide sustainable and innovative solutions that will save you money by decreasing the amount of paint wasted and reducing time spent. Working faster means higher throughput, which in turn leads to higher revenues.
