Initially considered laughable and unnoticeable, the story of Titan Tools, Inc. and the Titan airless paint sprayer that took the paint spraying industry by storm and revolutionized the rental aspect of commercial painting is one to remember.
First founded in 1968 by the son of machinist, John Geberth, Jr. started the company to carry on the trade of his father and soon began producing parts and accessories for paint sprayers. By 1989 Geberth had perfected his craft so well, he developed the first electric airless sprayer for contractors that cost less than $1,000.00. The compact size of the paint sprayer became the ideal rental paint equipment and led to a new division being created within the company specifically for rental equipment. Geberth retired in 1991 and the company was paired with another paint sprayer company, Speeflo, in 1995. The two companies complimented each other so much, that in 1999 they were acquired by the paint sprayer manufacturer, Wagner Spray Tech Corporation and became part of the company that is currently the second largest manufacturer of paint sprayers world-wide.
Titan Tool, Inc. was known for creating quality parts and accessories before it became a leading manufacturer for paint sprayer rentals and partnered with Speeflo to produce an extensive line of airless paint sprayers that operated with several different platforms. The offer a 4-year warranty of most of the Titan airless paint sprayers, a lifetime limited warranty on both the motor and drive shaft, and a 35-day satisfaction guarantee. They have service centers located in most Sherwin-Williams paint supply stores, as well as in various other paint supply centers. Titan is also known for supplying accessories for a lot more then its own line of paint sprayers. They had been producing sprayer tips that had been lasting longer then others of its kind before Wagner had acquired the company. In fact, Wagner had been one of its customers.
