SIX DECADES. THREE NAMES. ONE MISSION.
Industrial Paint Manufacturing Company. Indurall Paints. Induron Coatings Inc. The name may have changed. But six decades later, we still stand behind our founders’ original mission: "To produce the right finishes for the best long-term results, and to honestly represent them in a technically correct manner."
Induron was founded in 1947 (on limited capital and vast experience) by William E. Hood and Louis A. Prosch—who were determined to manufacture rust inhibitive primers for the booming steel fabrication industry in Birmingham, Alabama.
By the 1960's, our expansion into industrial primers and finishes included industrial maintenance coatings, OEM finishes and architectural paints.
Over the decades, family-owned Induron has established more than its share number of industry benchmarks. Architectural paints—like 101 Primer and Monarch Acrylics—with unlimited product warranties. Several breakthrough products utilizing patented coating formulas. High build, high performance products like Ruff Stuff 2100 Coal Tar Epoxy, Ruff Stuff 3300 Epoxy and Protecto 401 Ceramic Epoxy.
Now in its third generation of leadership, Induron’s high performance coatings serve a range of industrial applications broader than our founders ever envisioned. But the core business value of Technical Integrity continues to drive the company today. And tomorrow.
