Evansville, IN (PressExposure) December 15, 2007 -- Industrial paint customers in the Tri-State region of Southwest Indiana (Evansville & Vincennes), Northern Kentucky (Owensboro), and Southeast Illinois will find they have many more options coming in 2008 when it comes to purchasing paint & coatings. Porter Paints (whose parent company is PPG Industries) will now be carrying the Amercoat Industrial & Marine Coatings line (formerly Ameron). The coatings division of Ameron was purchased by PPG in 2007. Porter Paints will also have more inventory available on the PPG Protective & Marine Coating line and the PPG True-Finish Line for industrial customers.
"I really feel our steel fabricator and industrial paint customers will find this move very helpful to their business." says Will Fultz, the local PPG sales representative and coatings expert. "I anticipate this will also help us in aquiring business from new customers that our company has not done business with up to this point. More and more industrial coating & paint customers are starting to see the benefit of doing business here locally when a company provides the expertise and right product at a local level."
PPG has some unique and new products that steel fabricators and industrial paint customers found very appealing in 2007. Some of these products are one-pack inorganic zinc rich primers (single-component), cold weather epoxy systems that do not require an accelerator, and fast-drying topcoats (primarily urethane) that allow customers to speed up their production times.
"I saw an uptick in our industrial paint sales and expect this trend to continue. Many of our prospective customers are having product shipped in from locations from many miles away. It is our goal here locally to inform steel fabricators, OEM companies, factories, and industrial painting companies in general that PPG can match the performance of these products. We have the inventory here locally, competitive pricing, free delivery, and expert recommendations for projects." says Fultz.
Porter Paints have company stores located in Evansville (an eastside and westside store), Owensboro, and Vincennes that the industrial coatings featured in this article can be purchased from. Free delivery is available for a large area within the tri-state. You will need to contact Will Fultz for more information about your company and your invidual needs.
