The event was co-sponsored by Carboline, Finishing First (Powered by LMCI), McBrayer & Associates and Sherwin-Williams.

Food & Beverage Trends

Casey Ball, Global Market Director for High Performance Flooring and Mike Manetta, Global Market Director for Food and Beverage, both from The Sherwin-Williams Company, originally presented “Feed Your Business Growth: Meeting the Demands of the Food & Beverage Industry with New Technologies” on Nov. 10, 2020, in the conference’s protective and marine coatings track.

This webinar focuses on easy-to-install, low-VOC coatings and flooring systems that help achieve application time savings and accelerate return to service to reduce downtime and maintenance costs, as they are critical in running a profitable food and beverage business.

The conversation between Ball and Manetta explores food and beverage industry trends and new solutions focused on high-performance technologies such as urethane concrete that make the job easier for both the contractor and the owner.
