operational audits:

Consistency in any process is achieved through adherence to standards while maintaining documentation that reflects compliance to such standards. Routine Operational Audits insure procedures are being followed and traceability exists.  Our audits cover every aspect of the coating process from start to finish.  Receiving, part preparation, masking, racking, pre-treatment, coating application, curing, and testing to name a few.  We also cover all aspects of safety including PPE (personal protective equipment) and MSDS requirements.  The audit includes PM suggestions and forms for equipment, house keeping, chemical titrations, and sample testing.  Our liaison program allows for streamlined transfer of data and information between OEM's and their Suppliers, working together to insure quality and operational standards are being maintained.  Audits are also available to individual companies wishing to improve their current process. We also provide audits for General Contractors and Architectural firms to insure their Sub-Contractors are following correct coating standards and are utilizing correct products.

ICS: "interim coatings supervisor"

 "Interim supervising can be seen as the short-term assignment of a proven heavyweight interim Supervisor to manage a period of transition, crisis or change within an organization. In this situation, a permanent role may be unnecessary or impossible to find on short notice. Additionally, there may be nobody internally who is suitable for, or available to take up, the position in question. The ICS program allows Plant and Production Managers to focus on daily operations as usual, while maintaining supervision and continual production in their paint department until a permanent replacement has been hired. We will help you hire and train a permanent replacement if necessary, as well as assist in hiring and training new associates. ICS programs are available all states.
