How To Succeed In The Coatings Industry

Choosing the right partner in any new business venture is critical and the Polyurea and SPF (Spray Polyurethane Foam) contracting business is no exception. ArmorThane specializes in helping individuals or companies enter into the coatings business successfully. In the coatings business, the learning curve to success can be long and hard without the right partner to guide you. ArmorThane was founded by professionals who saw a void in the industry when it came to suppliers who understood the needs of coating contractors and could offer ongoing training and support for their new business. As an ArmorThane business professional, you can be assured that you have the proper training, support, and credentials to successfully maneuver your business through the day-to-day challenges of owning and operating a coating contracting company.

For over four decades, the ArmorThane staff has been manufacturing turnkey mobile spray rigs for the coatings. During that time, we have helped over 400 new coating contractors become long-term professionals in this competitive industry. We will be the first to admit that building and selling someone a mobile spray rig is the easiest part of what we do. The difficult part for most coating and equipment suppliers is to teach new coating customers how to own and operate a successful coating contracting company.

Most coating equipment providers only offer a ½ to 2-day classroom training “crash course” and then leave it up to the new coating business owner to figure out the rest from there. ArmorThane refuses to allow this to happen with our business partners. We realize that it takes years to develop a successful coating business program. A day or two of classroom training just isn’t enough to truly teach a new business owner the keys to success in this highly competitive industry. ArmorThane has spent the past few decades developing a system for success that involves hands-on field training as well as other forms of communication throughout the course of business development, then a continuation of available tech help 24/7 via phone.

Some of the keys to success in the coating contracting business are:

  •  Networking
  •  Bidding Projects
  •  Selling/Closing
  •  Jobsite Training
  •  Equipment Maintenance
  •  Invoicing
  •  Margin Tracking
  •  Labor Management
  •  Equipment Training
  •  Spray Training
  •  Safety Training
  •  Marketing & Lead generation
