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.

Project Spotlight: Utilities Inc. Flooring & Pipe Coatings Application

By: Paul Powers, Induron Sales Representative

As many of us have seen over the years in many markets, the Utilities Inc. maintenance team has relied on hardware, big box stores and commercial paint stores for their maintenance painting needs. These guys are hard-working people that carry a huge burden of keeping the community supplied with water. Consequently, painting becomes a “necessary evil.” However, after a short period of time, they realized that their current practices in maintenance painting were not producing results.

T&D Market Knowledge

By: Kendall Smith, Induron T&D Market Manager

Induron Coatings has been a major supplier to the electric utility industry for almost a decade now and employs individuals who have serviced the industry for many more decades. A few of us even go back to the early 1980s when thousands of electric transmission structures were purchased and installed around the country every year. Utility companies were protecting these structures from corrosion with multiple thin coats, which often only lasted 8-10 years.  Continue reading T&D Market Knowledge

Induron’s Size Advantage

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Nimble: It’s an adjective that I use on a regular basis to describe Induron. We can and have responded to customer requests quicker and more effectively than others who must go through multiple layers of approval prior to a response. Plus, our size enables us to launch reliable products to the market more efficiently. Though I sometimes feel like a mouse running amongst a heard of elephants as we compete with some of the behemoths that dominate our marketplace, I realize that the maneuverability of that little guy is a serious asset. Continue reading Induron’s Size Advantage

Georgia Power Concrete Poles: Not Your Usual Specification

By: Kendall Smith, Induron Power Market Manager

Usually, the coatings specifications for T&D structures are predictable. For example, in North America, weathered galvanized, high-voltage, electric transmission poles, towers and substation structures are often protected with sealers and coatings that are surface-tolerant, low stress on aged coatings, easy-to-apply, high-solids, high-build, and proven to protect for 20-25 years in one or two coats. Continue reading Georgia Power Concrete Poles: Not Your Usual Specification

Potential vs. People

By: Nick Jones, Induron Sales Representative

Encountering a new trend or the latest technology often triggers that “gotta-have-it” mentality. To me, one’s potential is similar to that mentality. However, do you know what it is you’re getting? Continue reading Potential vs. People

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
