Completing Circles: Visiting the Continental Gin Company’s Facility

By: Davies Hood, Induron President 

Four years ago, Induron had the opportunity to provide the coatings materials for an epic water tank rehabilitation project in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, Texas.

Not only was this cone-top water tank repainted by a noteworthy Graffiti artist Shep Fairley with materials that were all delivered and applied from an aerosol can (extremely unique in the water tank market!), but this tank repaint was also recognized by “The Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings” as one of the nation’s Top Projects of 2021.  Continue reading Completing Circles: Visiting the Continental Gin Company’s Facility

Visit with Dixon Engineering

A Partnership Built on Trust

By: Andy Odorzynski, Induron National Sales Manager

Visit with Dixon EngineeringLong before our products are applied to a structure, our partners in the business of specifying coatings must select the right technology for the project and write it into a specification. I believe this is best handled through deep partnership and open communication. It is with that spirit in mind that we recently hosted our friends from Dixon Engineering at our headquarters Birmingham, AL.  Continue reading A Partnership Built on Trust

Sales Retreat to Cancun: More in ’24!

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Every year, the Induron sales team gathers for our annual Sales Meeting. This is not different from most every other successful organization, and usually these meetings consist of some hands-on product demonstration, goal setting for the team, and some sort of “rah-rah.” Whether that “rah-rah” is in the form of sharing successes or a classic halftime “chew-out” depends in part on how the last year went. This year, instead of a more traditional “sales meeting,” we decided to take the entire Induron team ALONG WITH THEIR spouses and significant other’s to a resort in Playa Mujeres (Cancun), Mexico.  Continue reading Sales Retreat to Cancun: More in ’24!

A Day on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail

By: Joey Thomas, Induron Business Development Manager

Induron Golf OutingAs the sun rose on October 4th 2023, golfers from around Alabama (and this lucky Business Development Manager from Kentucky) gathered together in Muscle Shoals to take on the famously-challenging Fighting Joe course.  With long fairways, dunes-like mounds and plenty of water and sand, the course represents an abundance of tests to even the better ball strikers–but that is not what this day was all about.   Continue reading A Day on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail

A Tribute to Tex Enoch

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Alfred “Tex” Enoch has been in the protective coatings industry for 50 years. He began his career with Pennsbury Paint in 1969, and is retiring from Induron Coatings in July 2023. While we will no longer work together, Tex is much more than a retired Induron employee–Tex is a good friend who I consider to be one of my personal role models and a professional inspiration.  Continue reading A Tribute to Tex Enoch

The Six Most Dangerous Words

By: Jeff Lackey, Ph.D., Induron Technical Director

The most dangerous phrase in business is “we’ve always done it that way.” This phrase can be a killer of innovation, creativity, and growth. It can also lead to stagnation and decline. Continue reading The Six Most Dangerous Words

Building a Great Team Starts with Connection

By: Steve Freed, Induron Northeast Regional Sales Manager

Teams form in all aspects of life. We typically associate a team with sports, and in Philadelphia, we’ve had a pretty good run of success recently even though we haven’t gotten over that final hurdle just yet. Our Phillies competed in the World Series, and of course, the Eagles had a great run this season that ended with a very entertaining and tightly-contested Super Bowl.  Continue reading Building a Great Team Starts with Connection
