Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings Sherwin-Williams and NACE: Combatting Corrosion Together for 75 Years Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings has kept coatings at the forefront in the fight against corrosion for more than 150 years. And for the past 75 years, we have waged that battle in collaboration with NACE International. From helping NACE develop early best practices for the oil and gas industry to supporting training and educational ini- tiatives spanning numerous industries, we have helped owners and applicators improve coatings life cycles and application procedures to realize better outcomes for asset protection. Aligned with NACE's mission to protect the world against the adverse effects of corrosion, our mission is to create products that protect and preserve our customers' most val- ued assets. From alkyds to zincs, we offer a complete line of time-tested, high-performance coatings and systems to combat corrosion, supported by the industry's largest group of NACE-certified Coating Inspectors. In fact, we have more NACE-certified CIP Level 3 employees than any other company. Championing NACE Throughout Our Ranks Participation and training with NACE has contributed to long-term employee retention for Sherwin-Williams, as the organization's educational opportunities help associates excel and advance in their careers. Numerous employees— from sales managers to market directors—serve on NACE committees and as instructors for the organization. We're also one of the few member companies that organize their own on-site employee training classes, enabling NACE instructors to teach a group of associates in one company location. Supporting NACE Today and Tomorrow As a long-standing NACE supporter and partner, Sher- win-Williams is a Diamond Corporate Sponsor for the asso- ciation's annual conference and expo, as well as a NACE Foundation Presidents' Circle sponsor, helping the organi- zation promote science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers. Through the NACE Foundation, we also sponsor two annual Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings Academic Scholarships. The scholarships recog- nize students based on their academic excellence, work experience, professional activities, and commitment to cor- rosion protection.

"Having had a front-row seat for the working relationship between NACE and Sherwin-Williams for nearly 29 years, I know the two organizations are laser-focused on mitigating corrosion at every turn," said W. Doni Riddle, Senior Vice President of Sales for Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine Coatings and a Director on the NACE Foundation Board of Directors.
