This discussion is based on a regional or national standard for achieving these air quality goals. Continue reading The Challenges of OTC Regulations

Palmyra Tank Refurbishments

By: Paul Powers, Induron Sales Representative

The city of Palmyra, Missouri, which is located two hours north of St. Louis, was platted in 1819 and is home to nearly 4,000 residences. With many buildings and homes listed in the historical  registry, Palmyra is rich with Civil War and Pony Express history. 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.

Consolidation in the Coatings Industry: Where Does This Leave Induron? (Part 2)

By: David Hood, Induron CEO

Consolidation in the Coatings Industry

I am an outdoorsman. I fish, hunt, hike and love the land. When the Cuyahoga river caught fire in Cleveland and the air in Birmingham was yellow, something had to be done. The EPA was established and Congress, abdicating its responsibilities, gave it the authority to make law. The new laws were called regulations. Without comment on the value of these regulations, when a company is required to reformulate a product with sales in the thousands of gallons, it costs more that the same effort spread over tens of thousands of gallons. Larger companies clearly had an advantage with these regulations. The first 90% of “clean up” of the water and air was relatively easy to do. The EPA is still writing regulations trying to eliminate the next 10% of “pollution” without any regard for a cost/benefit analysis. A further advantage to larger companies.

By: David Parnell, Induron National Business & Distribution Manager

Induron Industrial Finishes

These days, the Industrial Finishes marketplace is experiencing a true David versus Goliath battle. The “Big Three” paint companies continue to gobble up the little guys. Customers, however, often seem to run away from these big guys and all their practices and processes. Instead, customers turn to the strong underdog who can get the job done, supply innovative products and form a true relationship with their company.  Continue reading Induron Industrial Finishes: A David vs. Goliath Battle
