Culture is Our Most Important Raw Material

By: Andy Odorzynski, Induron Sales Representative

Asset owners and contractors face a vital business decision when they choose which protective coatings to use on their projects. The technical attributes of a protective coating system are only the baseline qualification for a given product to be taken into consideration. Does the product protect the asset? Is it user-friendly? Can it handle the exposure environment? Is it attractive? These are the prerequisites for consideration, but not the metrics by which a selection is actually made.

Induron’s Size Advantage

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Nimble: It’s an adjective that I use on a regular basis to describe Induron. We can and have responded to customer requests quicker and more effectively than others who must go through multiple layers of approval prior to a response. Plus, our size enables us to launch reliable products to the market more efficiently. Though I sometimes feel like a mouse running amongst a heard of elephants as we compete with some of the behemoths that dominate our marketplace, I realize that the maneuverability of that little guy is a serious asset. Continue reading Induron’s Size Advantage

By: Chris Rowell, Induron Sales Representative

Long ago in the mid 90’s, I found myself on the perilous edge of a limestone quarry in Alabama. It was August—the time when the heat turns up and lingers to remind you that it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon…Hotter than six shades of hell.  Hotter than a $2 pistol Continue reading Pipe Coatings & Linings Market Knowledge

By: John Anspach, Induron Technical Director

In a flash of time, 15 years have passed. Unbelievable.

Clemens, Michigan. The following January, I received a full-time job with them as a process engineer and a production supervisor in training.

Induron Transitions into Next Generation of Leadership

By: David D. Hood, Induron CEO

The first time I earned a paycheck from Induron was as a 15-year-old in the summer of 1958. The company had bought a competitor and their machinery and equipment needed to be moved to our location. Since I was young, strong and eager to earn some money, I was the “hold the other end guy” for the job. My Dad drove me to work most days because I was not old enough to have a license. I earned a whopping $1.60/hour. Continue reading Induron Transitions into Next Generation of Leadership
