Vida Paint opened its doors in October of 1973 to cater to the paint needs of the growing oilfield and marine industry. Owner and founder David Kirkpatrick has been a resident of Morgan City, Louisiana since 1959 and is also the president of the company. The business has grown to include a second location in Houma, Louisiana (circa 1977), and a third location in Broussard, Louisiana just outside of Lafayette (circa 1996).
The range of products has also grown with the addition of a complete line of house paint and painting tools. The focus is on quality products and outstanding service for the professional as well as the do-it-yourselfer. Technical information, problem-solving help, and expert advice are considered essentials at Vida Paint, not just nice extras.
