Cooperation is a Powerful Tool

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to attend the annual Guild CPO Conference held at The Drake in Downtown Chicago, IL. As a 20-year-old organization made up of small- and medium-sized paint manufacturing companies, Guild CPO was organized to provide cooperative purchasing services for its member companies in order to improve their profitability. That’s a really nice way to say that the group is similar to a buyer’s co-op, where cooperation and teamwork really do help lift all. When it’s done right, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” As a longtime member and participant, I think that this group is currently doing it right! Continue reading Cooperation is a Powerful Tool

The protective coatings industry is navigating complicated VOC compliance regulations. The adaptation and enforcement of these new, and more aggressive VOC regulations (link to part 1) has produced a new generation of protective coatings for potable water tanks.

50 Years with Induron: Building Induron Coatings

By: David Hood, Induron CEO

In case you missed it, check out part one of this blog series, 50 Years with Induron: Changing Roles at Indurall. 

When beginning Induron Coatings, our goal was to find the right niche. The markets that seemed to be “not too big and not too small” were the ductile iron sewer pipe and water tank market. We experienced success in both markets. By concentrating on them technically and through sales and marketing efforts, we aimed to become experts and offer more value to our customers. Of course, it was not easy, but we have persevered and become more successful than imagined. Continue reading 50 Years with Induron: Building Induron Coatings
