About the Coatings Industry

Though you can't always see them, coatings are everywhere: on our jackets, walls, cars and computers, to name just a few places. The coatings industry impacts a broad range of sectors, from manufacturing to construction, with an estimated 300,000 people using these products as part of their jobs and contributing over £200 billion to UK GDP.
