International Paint and US Navy make coatings deal

International Paint Inc. (Houston, TX) and the US Navy's Military Sealift Command (MSC, Washington, DC) have entered into a contract for the Fleet Paint Programme for the supply of an estimated 3.9 million litres of product. The contract extends for a period of 1-5 years, and was awarded partly as a result of International Paint's ability to provide product and service for 29 different MSC facilities in 12 global US Navy zones and 33 additional shipyards worldwide, according to the company.

Included in the contract is the provision for engineering support and quality assurance. A comprehensive service package, including MSC personnel training, technical evaluation, and on-site troubleshooting, will be supported by International Paint's technical service staff.

Products selected for supply include high- performance antifoulings, anticorrosives, cosmetic finishes, and specialist deck coating systems for ship stores and drydocking activity.

The MSC fleet provides ocean transportation of equipment, fuel, supplies, and ammunition to sustain US forces worldwide during peacetime and in conflict.

International Paint Inc., a subsidiary of Akzo Nobel, manufactures protective and marine coatings.
