fac-owner.jpgWhat Does a Facility Owner Look for in a Quality Coating Contractor?

Wednesday March 18
2 to 4 p.m.
Panel Discussion Featuring: Connor McManus, TC Energy and coatings experts from various facility owners

Join this panel discussion organized by NIICAP (NACE International Institute Contractor Accreditation Program) to hear from leaders in the coating industry to see what facility owners look for in a quality coating job and in a contractor. The importance of quality work and correct specifications are hard to over-state, given their impact on the life of the structure, facility, pipeline, etc. Use of proper surface preparation, application, and inspection techniques lead to the highest quality work and extends the life of the asset, while reducing project costs by avoiding rework and other job non-conformances.
