BIRMINGHAM, AL - Induron Protective Coatings, Birmingham, Alabama, announced that Bob Maley has joined the company as Sales Manager for Florida. Maley will manage the service and sales team in the Florida market.

“We are excited to welcome Bob to the sales team as he not only offers valuable industry experience but also gives Induron the opportunity to expand into the Florida coatings market,” said Davies Hood, President of Induron. “Florida has a tremendous infrastructure, which presents limitless opportunities for Induron products.”

Maley brings more than 40 years of experience to his role at Induron from both the contracting and consulting sectors of industrial painting. He has been actively involved in projects in the architectural, institutional, water-wastewater, bridges and tunnels, storage tanks, conventional power, and historical renovation markets.

Maley is a member of SSPC, NACE and ICRI. He has published and presented numerous technical papers, instructed courses, and served on various committees. Maley has been a NACE Level 3 Certified Coating Inspector for more than 30 years and was among the first group of applicants to achieve SSPC Protective Coating Specialist status in 1996. He is an SSPC Level 2 Certified Concrete Coatings Inspector as well as a Supervisor/Competent Person for de-leading industrial structures.

“Working for Induron seemed like a natural progression, as vendors and suppliers are somewhat of a link between contractors and engineers - a triangle so to speak,” Maley said. “When I became aware that Induron was looking to actively pursue the Florida coatings market, the prospect of assuming such a role fit well with my desire to remain in the industry.”

Founded in 1947, Induron manufactures high-performance coatings that serve a range of industrial applications, including the wastewater, electrical transmission and distribution, and potable water storage, treatment and transmission industries.
