Article Type: Industry news From: Pigment & Resin Technology, Volume 39, Issue 3
Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings has been awarded a $24 million, five-year US Navy contract to supply marine coatings per just-in-time (JIT) delivery to four US Navy shipyards. The company was one of two low bidders in the first national comprehensive JIT coatings contract awarded by the Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, based in Norfolk, Virginia. The overall value of the contract, awarded over five years, is approximately $34.5 million. Previous US Navy JIT contracts had been awarded for individual shipyards. The four shipyards (located in Norfolk, Virginia; Portsmouth, New Hampshire; Bremerton, Washington; and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii) will share in large batch production of coatings that will be certified for all four shipyards. Sherwin-Williams will provide traditional MIL-Spec coatings as well as new technologies, including Fast Clad ER Epoxy, SeaGuard HMF, and Euronavy ES301.
