Grasan and PPG TrueFinish® Industrial Coatings: Performance is a must for Grasan, a manufacturer of conveying, crushing and screening equipment for coal, aggregates and construction industries. Its mobile and stationary equipment is subjected to constant battering from rubble and debris, not to mention the punishing effects of the weather. Clearly, only the most durable finishes can survive such conditions.
A High-Performance Relationship
When the Mansfield, Ohio-based company began to experience quality and delivery problems with another paint supplier in 2006, Plant Manager Scott Eilenfeld decided to switch to PPG TrueFinish®.
“I wanted to offer my customers a national name and reputation,” Eilenfeld says. “I also wanted a good quality finish at a reasonable price, and a reasonable delivery time.”
Grasan got all of that and more with PPG TrueFinish. Eilenfeld says the average turnaround time on orders is only about a week – a big improvement over the previous supplier. He also appreciates the color- match accuracy he gets with TrueFinish.
“I shoot about 20 or 30 different shades of gray, and the color match is always good with TrueFinish. I just turn over the paint chips that my customers give me,” he says.
Eilenfeld is especially impressed with the performance of Spectracron® 390-UV, a high solids industrial polyurethane that offers the ultimate in ultraviolet (UV) protection. During a recent job in Florida, he specified 390- UV for a 600-ton, electrically powered portable pit crusher – one of the largest in the nation.
“The sun is really hard on the paint in that part of the country,” Eilenfeld says.
Grasan’s customers demand the best, and Eilenfeld knows he can rely on PPG TrueFinish to deliver.
“I want a good product and good service, and that’s what I get for my money with TrueFinish,” he says.
