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?

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.  Continue reading Story of a Photo: What I Learned on a Cold Day in Chicago

Cooperation is a Powerful Tool

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

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
