Intech Services Welcomes Canadian Coatings to the LIA Program


(Newark, DE) - The team at Intech Services would like to extend its sincerest congratulations to Canadian Coatings of Longueuil, Québec. They are the most recent addition to Chemours' Licensed Industrial Applicator (LIA) program. The LIA program is an elite group of coating companies that have extensive knowledge of Teflon™ industrial coatings and experience in recommending and applying fluoropolymers in a variety of applications. LIAs meet a list of criteria and qualifications as well as quality of workmanship and are a reliable resource for recommending coating solutions and applying them to a customer’s specifications.

Canadian Coatings' journey to its current LIA status is an inspirational one. It is their second time being recognized, as the lack of a succession plan caused the near failure of the company. But new owners and the partnership of Maxime Biron and Gary Coons brought the company back to its previous success. Chemours approved the restoration of their LIA status, thanks to years of commitment to Teflon™ coatings as well as their willingness to experiment with new products as Chemours released them.

Intech had an idea Canadian Coatings was going to make a triumphant comeback when Mr. Biron came to them at I3 in Chicago in 2012. At the age of 22, Mr. Biron expressed his determination to bring the LIA status back to Canadian Coatings. After only 6 years, he has achieved this goal. Intech is proud to have such a promising young business owner as an example of the quality and conviction of all LIAs.
