Great Falls, Montana-based ADF International's paint plant has earned QP3 certification for its industrial coating applications from the Society for Protective Coatings.

 

The requirements for SSPC QP3 are similar to those for SSPC QP1, except they are specifically focused on shop coating operations. SSPC QP3 is a nationally recognized program that evaluates the practices of shop painting facilities in key areas of business. These standards are considered to be the minimum level of service and quality for today's coatings industry. The complex nature of coating systems, the specific conditions and surface preparation required by these systems, have made the QP 3 guidelines vital to the longevity of protective coatings applied in the shop.

 

Sitting next to ADF Group’s larger steel fabrication plant, the paint plant opened for business in January and now has around 56 employees, while the rest of the growing Great Falls operations employs about 165 workers.
