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

Seeking Standardization in Coating Specifications for Wastewater Projects

By: Andy Odorzynski, Induron Sales Representative

This article was originally published in the September 2017 issue of the Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings.

As a technical sales representative for a paint manufacturing firm, I have the opportunity to work with specifying engineers and facility owners of projects spanning many different industries. Few industries present the same level of challenges in coatings specification development that one encounters in the wastewater marketplace. Outside of a few firms with industry expertise, specifying engineers tend to rely entirely on paint manufacturers to select coatings for their wastewater specifications. This has created an environment where specifications vary wildly. This article will discuss how we as coatings professionals can better support the specifying engineers with whom we work to bring about some consistency and guidance to the development of wastewater specifications.
