It’s been a big year for SSPC: The Society for Protective Coatings. Not only did the association celebrate its 65th anniversary and welcome aboard its new executive director, but it also has secured new headquarters offices that will support the company’s continued growth.

Relocating from the Strip District section of Pittsburgh, which SSPC called home for 20 years, the organization is pulling up stakes and settling into nearby Green Tree.

Effective Dec. 18, SSPC’s new address will be: 800 Trumbull Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15205.

What You Need to Know

SSPC has issued a notice regarding communications and availability to ensure the least disruption to members and clients during the transition.


SSPC purchased a 26,000-square-foot building, shown here in a conceptual rendering for signage, to house its new world headquarters; the association will begin its move to the new location on Dec. 18.

On Dec. 18, the SSPC offices will close at noon as the move gets underway.

At that time, email, fax and the website will be unavailable. These resources are expected to be back in service in a short amount of time, but SSPC warns that it is possible for the disruption to last 48 to 72 hours.

If you must email SSPC during the move, SSPC asks that you send your message to

Telephone calls to SSPC will be forwarded to voicemail and will be returned ASAP, the association says. Phones will resume normal function at the opening of business on Monday, Dec. 21. and conference registration will still be open and functioning throughout the transition period.

The physical mailing address is the only change for contacting the organization. Payments will still be processed through the same payment address, and phone numbers will remain the same as well.

SSPC’s New Home

In September, the association purchased a 26,000-square-foot building west of the city to house its new world headquarters.

The building sits just off of Interstate 376 West, which runs between the airport and downtown area. In addition to convenience, Executive Director Bill Worms says, “The new building more than doubles our current space and will provide our organization the room we need to accommodate our rapid growth and the addition of training facilities.”

The highly visible location also provides the opportunity to create a greater awareness of SSPC and the coatings industry among the Pittsburgh region's 1 million residents, he adds.
