A History of the First 70 Years (1947-2017)

By: David D. Hood, Induron CEO

A history of the first 70 years (1947-2017) of:

The Industrial Paint Manufacturing Company (July 1, 1947-June 20, 1966)

Indurall Coatings, Inc. (June 20, 1966-Sept. 15, 1995)

Induron Coatings, Inc. (Sept. 15, 1995-Sept. 30, 2011)                                                  

Induron Coatings, LLC (Oct. 1, 2011-Present)

Seventy years ago, William E. Hood and Louis A. Prosch, Jr. started The Industrial Paint Manufacturing Company. These men believed in honor, integrity and serious, honest business. To begin the company, Hood, Prosch and several others invested $32,500 in capital. Prosch was the money and organization man and Hood was the paint formulator and face of the company. The two partners operated out of an office they borrowed from an uncle while assembling equipment to make paint. On May 6, 1948, they rented factory space, purchased equipment and made their first batch of red primer. Continue reading A History of the First 70 Years (1947-2017)

In fact, in 1827, the town became the Marion County Seat, which established it as the oldest postal stop in Missouri that is still in operation today. Induron is fortunate to have worked with the city to refurbish three water tanks. Continue reading Palmyra Tank Refurbishments

We’ve Got Your Back

By: Linc York, Retired Induron Sales Representative

When my wife and I visited the Black Canyon of the Gunnison many years ago, I realized that I had a fear of heights. As I approached a guard rail along the canyon edge to admire it’s incredible depth, I literally stopped in my tracks. I slowly inched the remaining 20 feet, but became extremely uncomfortable.  I did not feel secure or trust the guard rail. Continue reading We’ve Got Your Back
