Somay Products, Inc.

Somay Products, Inc. is a roof coating manufacturer started by a young entrepreneur who had moved to Miami from Columbus, Ohio, Sy Greene, his wife, Myrtle, and his brother Bob. In the early 1920’s, they served as a distributor of raw materials used to make paints, and the company was known as Southern Manufacturer’s Agency – thus the derivation of the name “SOMAY.” In those days, many experienced painters would buy linseed oil, rosin, turpentine, dry powder pigments of various colors, and personally mix these ingredients together by hand in a bucket or drum to make the “paint” or coating for a building’s exterior or interior surface. This was a full quarter-century prior to the invention of waterborne, so-called “latex,” wall paints.
