PENETRON Specialty Products welcomed industry experts and customers on March 10th-11th to its manufacturing facility in Allentown, PA, for the company’s bi-annual Research Council meeting. This event is an important part of the company’s ongoing product innovation efforts.

“Our Research Council events are a regular effort by our sales and tech support people to talk about new products that we’re working on – or have released – and learn more about where the market is going,” explains Peter Trainor, Vice President of Sales at PENETRON Specialty Products (PSP). “This year, over 30 customers and industry professionals joined us for a day and a half of presentations and collaboration.”

Part of the PENETRON Group of global companies, PSP is a recognized innovator in surface preparation and concrete restoration products. Our material specialists work with raw materials suppliers and technology partners to provide high levels of quality and reliability. The Research Council event is a key aspect of these efforts.

The Research Council is a 1 ½-day program that includes the following highlights:

  •     Evaluating the performance of existing products
  •     Reviewing current industry standards and future modifications
  •     Outlining product improvements and enhanced installation methods
  •     Brainstorming how to optimize project results

Product demonstrations and hands-on evaluation of new products and materials were done by the PSP sales and technical support team, and attendees tested the performance of current products to see what features and benefits could best fill project needs. The tests and evaluations allowed Research Council attendees to participate in a crucial product development phase that ensures consistent product performance and results. Their participation was invaluable for enhancing the current line of PSP products and determining the present and future needs for these types of products in the floor prep and concrete repair marketplace.

“At PSP, we understand R&D to also mean “Reaching out & Discussing,” adds Mr. Trainor. “We exchanged valuable input and helped strengthen our partnerships. We believe the success of PSP depends on close relationships between manufacturing and application.”

PSP will host its next Research Council meeting in the fall of 2015. Please contact Peter Trainor ptrainor(at)penetronsp(dot)com for more information.
