"Really enjoyed the show and custom coaters meeting in Vegas. Just wanted to pass along to you some benefits we’ve seen this year from PCI membership. The discussion during the custom coater round table centered around energy savings. From listening to Dave and Mike talk about the "programs" with their gas companies, we contacted our gas supplier and will soon be seeing savings of about $12,000/year. This will pay for our trip to Vegas and our PCI membership."
Rodney Blocker, North Basin Coating, Inc.

"PCI provides its members access to the technical authority in the powder coating industry. Additionally, it affords its members both networking and marketing opportunities that would be extremely cost prohibitive outside the umbrella of the association. Just one customer relationship generated from the exposure on the PCI website provides financial justification for membership."

No other organization can boast such a comprehensive delegation of the powder coating industry."

"I am a firm believer that two heads are better than one and The Powder Coating Institute is the association where this has been proven time and time again. Sherwin-Williams is very selective on where we spend our marketing dollars and will only support organizations that really make a difference. PCI is an organization that has always provided a good value to us, and this value has been strongly enhanced over the last two years with the new direction and programs that have been institute
