SSPC’s venerable Industrial Painting Committee has appointed new leadership and is seeking new member companies.
At its recent meeting in Victoria, British Columbia, the SSPC subcommittee elected Jeffrey Diamond, CEO and co-president of Goodman, as Chairman; Cliff Harper, of Certified Coating Specialists Inc., as Educational Chairman; and Chris Challoner, of Main Industries, as Treasurer.

Mike Challoner, of Main Industries, stepped down as Chairman; and Treasure Jim Stelzer, of J.R. Stelzer Co., ended a 15-plus-year tenure as treasurer.
Elite Industry Group
The Industrial Painting Committee (IPC) is an elite industry peer group nearly as old as SSPC itself. It members represent a diverse group of industrial and commercial blasting and painting contractors throughout North America.
The IPC “is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence for all member companies,” said Chris Challoner. “Its core values are those of lawful operational integrity; unselfish sharing of wisdom, knowledge and experience; and successful growth and prosperity.”
In addition to the officers’ companies, current active member firms include Coatings Unlimited Inc., Dunkin & Bush Inc., FCS Group LLC, F.D. Thomas Inc., Harrison Muir Inc., Universal Painting Corp. and Vulcan Painters Inc. Honorary members include Brad & Jerry Brock of Brock Enterprises Inc., Bruce Hall of Life Shield Holding LLC, Steve Jeffress of Jeffco Painting & Coatings Inc., and Bob Ziegler of BBZ Consulting Inc.
The committee is now seeking additional member companies. The committee meets twice a year and will hold its next meeting in January at SSPC 2013 in San Antonio.
