QUALICOAT Membership Continues to Expand
The start of 2019 welcomes C&O Powder Coaters into membership of QUALICOAT UK & Ireland. Having passed all inspections late in 2018, C&O are the latest company to be offered an applicators licence and join a dynamic association which continues to go from strength to strength in the application of high quality architectural powder coatings.
Based in St Helens, C&O Powder Coatings were formed in 1985 have continually provided high quality coatings to the industry. Alan Maginnis, Chair of QUALICOAT UK & Ireland comments: ‘The association welcomes C&O into membership which has never been stronger in the UK, our members meeting continue to grow and this shows a real commitment to the QUALICOAT standard from applicators in the UK & Ireland. Importantly we are seeing a huge increase in specifications which call for architectural aluminium coated to the QUALICOAT standard, now in its fifteenth edition. We are delighted to have further new potential members in 2019 who are undertaking inspections with a view to obtaining licences and I look forward to an active year within QUALICOAT.”
Across the globe the association is seeing an increase in membership and the independent QUALICOAT standard is clearly one of the most successful global standards available when specifying architectural aluminium coatings. As London is seen as the global architectural hub, it is clear that the QUALICOAT standard can be easily specified and applied anywhere.
Copies of the fifteenth edition of the QUALICOAT Standard, complete with amendments and updates, is freely available through the UK Association website, www.qualicoatuki.org together with an up-to-date list of Powder Suppliers, Pretreatment Suppliers and Applicators. Printed literature and telephone support is available from QUALICOAT UK & Ireland Head Office in Birmingham on 0121 601 6746. The Association can also be followed on Twitter at @Qualicoat.
