This issue is dedicated to Coatings World’s International Buyers’ Guide, an annual listing of companies offering pigments, resins, additives, solvents and oils as well as laboratory and production equipment to the paint and coatings industry. If you are a formulator, the information here can serve as a starting point and an invaluable asset in your search for suppliers to serve your formulation needs, particularly in today’s business environment where supply issues are in constant need of attention.
Keep this issue close at hand throughout the next year, as it can provide you with raw material and equipment providers, contacts, web site addresses and e-mail details. You can also search our online database at our website CoatingsWorld.com.
Finding the right supplier and developing a relationship with them could be the key to unlocking formulation challenges that could be blocking growth opportunities. In today’s tough economy finding the right supplier can be the key to success.
Don’t underestimate the value of a good supplier. Not only can a good supplier provide essential materials and/or equipment, but they can be a tremendous source of product, formulation and manufacturing information. Good luck in your search and let us know if we can be of any assistance.
