Stephen Walters, president of Chicago's Progressive Coating, was elected president of the Northern Illinois Chapter of  the Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI), a technical and professional organization that provides information and training on surface coating technologies.

 

CCAI works to raise the standards of finishing operations through educational meetings and seminars, training manuals, certification programs and outreach programs with colleges and universities.

 

Progressive Coating has been a member of CCAI since 1998 and Stephen has served on its Local Board since 2004.

 

“I’m truly honored and excited to lead this chapter of the association and I look forward to building momentum and tackling our objectives, including opening new doors for young people to explore career paths in the finishing industry,” said Walters. “As an industry we need to address the skills gap and an aging workforce. We also want to encourage members to get out of their own silos, join and be active in industry associations, and mix with other manufacturers. There is always something new to learn, and the more information you have, the more effective you can be.”
