Membership Memo: It Makes Sense
Posted on Tuesday, January 30, 2018
Bluestreak I MES I QMS™ joined PCI about
four years ago. As a technology provider to
this serviced-based market, we have appreciated
everything PCI has to offer, and have enjoyed
partnering with PCI by connecting to the
membership through participating at events, speaking
opportunities, annual meetings and sponsorships.
From what we are experiencing in the market,
(especially internationally), there is an accelerated
interest in adding or upgrading powder coating
business software; technology to run an entire
company from quoting and order entry to invoicing
and shipping. We’re finding that powder coating
professionals are eager to embrace new technologies
to drive down costs, improve quality and drive up
value. With the right solution provider at their side,
small businesses can now compete with the “bigger
boys.” PCI has allowed us to grow our professional
network, meet new clients, and stay informed with
what is happening within this industry.
We also have worked with the PCI staff on a
number of internal opportunities. They are very
professional and willing to discuss/consider new ideas
to provide suppliers like us with creative ways to
position our product in front of its members in a way
they can appreciate and take advantage of.
It’s an exciting time to be involved with this
industry because rising applications across end-use
industries (automotive, aerospace, industrial, and
consumer goods) are driving the powder coating
market demand. The opportunity to align ourselves
with PCI was a logical decision that made business
sense. We definitely recommend it to any powder
coating business and other suppliers as well.
Todd Wenzel is president and Ron Beltz is director of
strategic accounts at Bluestreak I MES I QMS™.
