Col-Met Engineered Finishing Solutions Announces New Engineered Products Group

Rockwall, TX, January 13, 2015 ... Col-Met Engineered Finishing Solutions recently announced our new business strategy to be recognized as an organization that provides Engineered Finishing Solutions and to build an infrastructure to bring new innovation and services to the industry. In support of this strategy, Col-Met has recently expanded and added an Engineered Products Group. This group will be led by Steve Houston, Chief Marketing Officer, and will focus on larger, more complex finishing designs (in partnership with our distributors). "We see our business growing in many areas and needed more focus on the large multicomponent finishing solutions," says Steve Houston.

This highly experienced group has been selected to help our distribution partners design finishing solutions from concept to installation. We have added two main Engineered Product Designers, with combined, more than 40 years' experience in designing complex finishing solutions using multiple components. Aaron Willis has been in the finishing industry for more than 22 years, and working with him is James Branch, adding an additional 28 years of experience. In addition, Cayce Carr, with more than 15 years experience, will focus on project management to assure not only proper design, but track the project after the order is placed through our internal system. He will also handle and manage our installation service team that will be led by Kory Larson who recently accepted the role of Manager of Installation services. Kory has served the industry for more than 14 years and has installed highly customized booths and systems for a variety of finishing system manufacturers. We are extremely pleased that Kory is bringing this new service to Col-Met Engineered Finishing Solutions.

"This is yet another example of our commitment to bringing our distributors an additional level of service. While we understand that many of our distributors offer installation services, this is in no way an effort to compete with them on any level. We want this to be complementary to our distributor partners and allow them the chance to use this additional COLMET service as needed, if needed," Steve Houston CMO.
