SSPC 2018 Recap

By: Ben Rowland, Induron Technical Service Director

Induron Protective Coatings was excited once again to exhibit and participate in one of our industry’s major national trade shows, SSPC 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana. An unusual cold snap was experienced in the Crescent City that brought a hard freeze and even a little snow, which is extremely rare. Despite some closed roads and businesses, the conference went off without a hitch. Continue reading SSPC 2018 Recap

Meet Induron’s Technical Service Director

By: Ben Rowland, Induron Technical Service Director

Having been employed by Induron Protective Coatings for over 10 years now, I’ve been able to watch the company grow consistently. In recent years, namely 2017, things have ramped up beyond what I would consider consistent growth. We have a dedicated sales team far larger than ever before. We have a geographic footprint more expansive than it has ever been before. We are delving into more diversified markets/industries than ever before.  In the midst of all these “ever before” statements, we’ve maintained our ability to serve our various customers and markets as well as any manufacturer in the industry.

Induron Sales Strategy Meeting: Good People with Great Ideas

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Last week I had the opportunity to host a small group of Induron’s Sales Team at our corporate Headquarters here in Birmingham, AL. What started out as an opportunity for a couple of our sales team members to attend the Sales Bootcamp at Samford University’s Brock School of Business evolved into a two-day meeting complete with product application demonstrations, new Market Presentations (including one by a key customer!), good southern BBQ, a Sales Team Strategy meeting that included a SWOT analysis and a homemade dinner on the back porch of our EVP’s house. I considered the entire meeting a 10 out of 10 in terms of quality of time spent between sales training, hands-on product demonstration, long-term strategy and good ol’ fashioned fun (team building). I wasn’t the only one who thought the meeting was a success and time well spent. Our key customer who presented to the team even asked for some of the Saw’s BBQ Sauce to be included with his next paint shipment! See a few other comments below from some of the attendees:

SSPC 2017 Wrap-Up

By: Ben Rowland, Induron Sales Representative

SSPC 2017After a several years’ hiatus from SSPC’s Annual Conference, Induron Protective Coatings was proud to once again exhibit and participate in one of the protective coatings industry’s preeminent trade shows. Unlike many other conferences we regularly attend, which tend to be more market specific, such as water, wastewater, power, municipal and state level shows, SSPC  is a true industrial painter’s conference. All the major components for industrial coatings projects were present: manufacturers of coatings and equipment, suppliers for abrasives and raw materials, painting contractors from a wide variety of markets, specification writers and industry experts.

Induron’s Annual Sales Meeting: A Good Time with Great People

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Last week I had the pleasure of hosting the Induron Sales Team at our annual Sales Meeting. This year’s event was held at the beautiful Pursell Farms near Childersburg, AL. Our Team spent two nights together under one roof at the “Man’s World-esque” Parker Lodge. I describe this lodge as ‘Man’s World’ because of the Mountain Lodge décor, which includes a Moose-Head above the mantel, a game room complete with billiard, ping-pong and foosball tables, a patio with a fire pit and cigar ashtray overlooking the 17th green, a large dining area where we enjoyed a filet mignon prepared in-house, AND a modern meeting room featuring leather chairs and two entire walls of windows as well as modern A/V!

Story of this Photo: Mid Delta Regional Airport Water Tank

By: Ben Rowland, Induron Sales Representative

Mid Delta Regional Airport Water TankPictured here is the elevated water tank located at the Mid Delta Regional Airport in Greenville, MS.

I recently visited Greenville, MS to give a presentation. Since I was in the area, I decided to go check out a job Induron completed 7 years ago. Just as I had hoped for and expected, the tank looked great! Seven years doesn’t sound like much, especially these days when we expect exterior finish coats to last 15-20 years, but let’s look a little harder at the photo.  Continue reading Story of this Photo: Mid Delta Regional Airport Water Tank
