Director's Message: PCI's focus Continues to Sharpen

Posted on Tuesday, May 1, 2012

In 2009, The Powder Coating Institute took bold steps to change the focus of the organization and offer additional value to its members. A technical infrastructure was added to serve as a source of information and direction for the industry. It included a technical director, lab services, new training programs and new products. We rebuilt our website to make it more functional and useful. We undertook new market research efforts to provide valuable information to our members and the industry. We began to rewrite our handbook to bring it up to date with new technologies. We began to build new standards, new tools, and more comprehensive services for all of our members and industry partners. As we progress in this third year of the five-year plan that was initiated in 2009, we have completed a lot, and there is still much to be accomplished. It is all part of our effort to provide value to our members as well as to help make our industry stronger. In addition to our original goals, we have added new ideas as we go along as well. It is important that our membership is aware of our efforts, and I am looking for feedback—ideas, comments, questions—from our members. What can we do to help you?
