CFSA Sponsor Spotlight: IVC Industrial Coatings

We are pleased to continue our series of Sponsor Spotlight articles in which we profile from time to time a different CFSA member company that has chosen to sponsor a program or activity. CFSA is very fortunate to have many generous companies that financially support the association during the year, and this is an opportunity for us to thank them and to profile their company for the entire membership.

We continue the series this month with IVC Industrial Coatings, a new sponsor of CFSA events. Here are the responses to our questions.

When did your company first join CFSA, and what do you value most about your membership?

We have been a proud member of CFSA since July of 2006. We greatly value this partnership, as it allows us to stay abreast of the needs and changes in this industry so we can quickly react to its needs. The relationships that we have been able to form through our association with CFSA are invaluable.
