What Didn’t Kill Us, Really Did Make Us Stronger

By: Andy Odorzynski, Induron National Sales Manager

Andy OdorzynskiFor the first time in a while, I’m optimistic! I look at the beginning of 2023 very much like a student finishing college and beginning a new career: We spent the past few years working our butts off! The results were good most of the time, but we also had to work through some failure. We had to get serious about our priorities and decide to push through the tough stuff. To paraphrase one of my favorite contemporary business gurus, Simon Sinek: we knew who could hoist a sail. Now we know who is able, and more importantly willing, to hoist a sail in a storm Continue reading What Didn’t Kill Us, Really Did Make Us Stronger

2023, Induron is Ready

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

2023, Induron is ReadyAs we flip the calendar from 2022 to 2023, I must say that I am optimistic about Induron’s position in our target markets. 2022 was another stressful year in the coatings industry–much like the two preceding years–because of a myriad of supply chain issues ranging from consistently high inflation to shipping delays, and in some extreme cases, ABSOLUTELY NO RAW MATERIAL available.  Continue reading 2023, Induron is Ready

A Tribute to Barry Peters

By: Davies Hood, Induron President

Barry Peters is one of the best “hires” that I have ever made as a manager. For anyone who has ever been responsible for hiring and firing people, that statement says A LOT! 

With a heavy heart, from both a personal and professional side, I would like to wish Barry a healthy, happy and long retirement. I first met Barry back in 1987 in the old Indurall Southside Paint Store located on 24th & 7th Avenue South on a Saturday afternoon. He was working by himself back in the warehouse when my father (owner of the company at the time) and I walked in and made ourselves comfortable behind the counter with a couple of cold Coca-Cola’s. Barry walked back into the retail part of the building to see two unknown faces behind the counter — a place they shouldn’t be. He immediately sized us up and, in his most authoritative voice, asked if he could help us. Knowing we were unrecognized as co-workers, we immediately introduced ourselves and effusively apologized. However, that first impression left an indelible image of someone who has always done-the-right-thing when presented with a surprise or a challenge. Continue reading A Tribute to Barry Peters

A Super Bowl Story: How are the Kansas City Chiefs and Induron similar?

By: Jeff Lackey, Induron Technical Director

Induron's Super Bowl StoryI’ve been a Kansas City Chiefs fan for a long time. I used to live in Kansas City and still have a daughter who lives there. Arrowhead Stadium is one of the great, “old-fashioned” stadiums with a tremendous legacy. 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?
