Our annual International Buyers’ Guide is a comprehensive listing of companies offering pigments, resins, additives, solvents and oils, as well as production and laboratory equipment to the paint and coatings industry. When we first started compiling our Annual Buyers’ Guide the Internet was still in its infancy and the Buyer’s Guide served as a “Yellow Pages” to the paint and coatings industry. Throughout the year we would receive many phone calls requesting replacement copies of the issue, since it inevitably would wind up being borrowed and not returned by an officemate.
Now our readers have the best of both worlds. While you should still make sure to keep this issue close at hand to use throughout the year, you also have the option to utilize the digital version. You can search our online database at www.coatingsworld.com to look up raw material and equipment suppliers and their contact details.
This year we added a Trade Association Directory, which should serve as another valuable resource. This directory will also be available online. I welcome any suggestions on ways we can improve this annual offering.
Do you think your company should be included in our Buyers’ Guide?
If your company makes products used to formulate, produce or test paint and coatings, we would love to include you in the next print edition of Coatings World’s International Buyers’ Guide (September 2014). To be included in both the print and online editions, send us your contact details, including company name, contact person, phone, fax, e-mail and web site to:
