In today's market, finding the right supplier is key

By Tim Wright | December 3, 2008

If the key to success in the paint and coatings industry is finding the right supplier for your formulation needs, than you hold in your hands the master key to unlock all doors. The December issue contains our annual International Buyers' Guide, which provides the coatings industry with a single printed source of raw materials and equipment needed to manufacture paints, coatings, adhesives and sealants. Contact information for the more than 300 suppliers listed in these pages include sales offices in the U.S., Europe and Asia-Pacific region, which can offer your company's businesses the perfect point of contact.

In today's marketplace of rising prices and hot growth in the Asia-Pacific region, finding a suitable supplier is more important than ever before. Companies have it tough across the board in terms of the cost of doing business and making and shipping products. Sourcing key supplies can also be an issue. We suggest that you keep this issue close at hand throughout 2009. It may turn out to be one of your most valuable resources.

You can also search online at www.coatingsworld.com where our Buyers' Guide is posted in real time. So while suppliers are known to merge, sell off businesses, or add new lines on occasion, our web site can be a great resource to find a new supplier of pigments, additives, resins and machinery for the lab and production facility.
