Do the evolution

Published February 9, 2006
With impending VOC regulations casting its net around the coatings industry, suppliers and manufacturers alike are being forced to evolve to meet these new demands. The main challenge is finding ways to deliver the high quality performance customers expect while complying with the regulations.

Keeping this in mind, I point you to several topics in this issue of Coatings World, including our annual look at wood coatings (page 28) and corrosion (page 33). Find out how manufacturers of both are balancing performance with health, safety and environmental issues.

Also featured in this issue is our M&A Update, written by Stephen Einhorn and Jackie Christiansen of Einhorn Associates, Inc., who take you through the merger and acquisition activity throughout 2005.
