2018 in Review

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

As Induron Coatings entered our seventh decade of providing “Reliable Protection Through Innovative Coatings,” we knew that change and adaptation was necessary to continue with our mission. Don’t get me wrong, 2017 was a record year in terms of sales, team building and company culture at Induron. But, the real takeaway from our 70th Anniversary Celebration, was that in order to succeed in business, companies had to constantly adapt and continue to work to improve culture. At Induron, we have a proven track record of both. Here are a few examples: Continue reading 2018 in Review

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.

10 Years with Induron

By: Tex Enoch, Induron Sales Representative

It was November 2007, and for the first time in my life, I was unemployed.  I grew up in the protective coatings industry.  I joined Pennsbury Coatings in 1969 working as a salesperson for my father who started the company 4 years earlier.  Fifteen years later, I became the president of Pennsbury, which at the time remained a small, regional coatings manufacturing company specializing in coatings for the water and wastewater industries with a unique emphasis on the protection of water storage tanks.

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.
