Industrial Finishes & Systems, a distributor of RV paint, equipment and supplies, hired Pat Mormile, who will explore new coatings technology for the company, according to a recent news release.

Mormile will explore new coatings technology for Industrial Finishes & Systems customers. “My job is to find new technology and solutions that fit into our portfolio,” Mormile said in a news release. “I’ll also serve as a champion for new technology and follow-through, helping the company assess business practicalities for our customers. Emerging chemical science is going to impact many industry segments.”

Mormile brings a 38-year background in chemistry to the Industrial Finishes & Systems team, most notably in polymers, coatings and new chemical technology.

He has a long relationship with Industrial Finishes & Systems dating back to the early 1990s. At the time, Mormile worked for BASF’s Automotive Refinish Research and Development group.

“Even back then, you could tell that Industrial Finishes was an organization that loved innovation,” he said. “They were breaking new ground, pioneering paint techniques for the recreation vehicle industry.”

Following his time with BASF, Mormile accepted a position as R&D Director with Nippon Paint’s New Technology group in Thailand. Part of a Singapore-based conglomerate, Nippon is Asia’s largest paint manufacturer.

 “Bringing Pat on board demonstrates our unyielding commitment to new, innovative solutions in the coatings industry,” Industrial Finishes & Systems President Glenn Duckworth said. “As a solutions provider, we have to understand the impact that new technology has at a chemical and molecular level, and Pat is an expert in his field.”

Mormile will be based in the Midwest and work with customers in each of Industrial Finishes & Systems’ markets, including automotive, RV, aerospace and industrial.
