There are so many exemplary companies working today in the field of commercial and industrial high-performance coatings that it’s difficult to count them all. Nonetheless, CoatingsPro Magazine will once again recognize industry excellence with its third annual Contractor Awards Program.
The 2019 Contractor Awards Program is scheduled for Wednesday, March 27 from noon to 1 p.m. local time. The ceremony will be held at the Blue Theater (Booth 2108) in the Exhibit Hall of the Nashville Music City Center.
CoatingsPro Editor-in-Chief Stephanie Chizik will be on hand to announce winners and present trophies and plaques to finalists in these six categories: Commercial Concrete, Commercial Roof, Industrial Concrete, Industrial Steel, Specialty Project, and Contractor/Crew Most Valuable Player (MVP). The MVP award is given to a deserving team or crew member for outstanding contributions to a given project.
The submission period for the 2019 Contractor Awards was between November 2017 and November 2018, and all entries were evaluated by a panel of industry experts that make up the CoatingsPro Editorial Advisory Group. For more information on this year’s Contractor Awards, or to see a list of previous award winners, please visit the CoatingsPro website.
The NACE International Institute Contractor Accreditation Program (NIICAP) is a robust accreditation program endorsing those contractors who have undergone auditing and have a documented record of meeting owner requirements.
The importance of routine inspection and documentation of aboveground storage tanks (ASTs)—whether required daily, weekly, monthly, or annually—was the focus of a training session on Wednesday afternoon during CORROSION 2019. Presented by Pat Keo of TTI Environmental, Inc., the training incorporated all aspects of inspecting ASTs.
Attendees of CORROSION 2019 began their busy week of meetings, lectures, forums, symposia, exhibits, and more by participating in the first networking event, CORROSION Crew Social Brew.
