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.

Reflecting on a Paint Career with Induron…

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

Induron Sponsors Inaugural Contractor Connect Event

All of this occurred at a classic hotel that pre-dates the Civil War (part of the history of The Grand includes a cannon ball from the Battle of Mobile!) located on the serene waters of the Mobile Bay.
