Recently, I was reminded of the ole’ saying “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” It’s not every day, or even anything that occurs on any sort of regular basis, but a few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to work all weekend. Continue reading Working on the Weekend

I’ve been a Kansas City Chiefs fan for a long time. I used to live in Kansas City and still have a daughter who lives there. Arrowhead Stadium is one of the great, “old-fashioned” stadiums with a tremendous legacy. Believe it or not, the Chiefs were in the very first Super Bowl (back when it was called the AFL-NFL Championship). Unfortunately the Chiefs, led by Lenny Dawson, lost to the Packers, led by Alabama alumni Bart Starr, that year. Continue reading A Super Bowl Story: How are the Kansas City Chiefs and Induron similar?

About 5 or 6 years ago, I began teaching Concrete Coating Inspection classes for SSPC because of my passion for preparing and coating concrete. When I took the class about 10 years ago, it changed my career path and led me in new directions. As I focused increasingly more on the three main market segments for concrete coatings (floors, tanks and infrastructure), I became aware of just how much ingenuity and knowledge is required of the applicators of these products.

It’s been a busy year at Induron full of exciting projects and new products and we look forward to an exciting 2020 ahead! With the holidays upon us, we want to take time to reflect on what we are truly grateful for.

At Induron we are never satisfied with where we are. There is always room for improvement. The harder we work, the more positive results we reap. It requires commitment to the team and buying in to team goals. If you don’t show up, you’re letting the team down. We all want to be the reliable teammate who consistently performs, shows up and works hard with focus, determination and heart. Continue reading Working with Heart

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
