June 22, 2011

June 22, 2011 — AkzoNobel Acoat selected Titanium National Performance Group this week announced plans to donate $3,000 for Database Enhancement Gateway (DEG) improvements and continuing education through the March Taylor Memorial Fund.

For the first initiative, the 20 Group is offering a $1,000 grant, to be allocated between three individuals who submit the best ideas for database improvements this year. DEG and Titanium Group members will set the criteria and determine the measurement of contribution for each award. Submissions can be made at DEGWEB.org. The Titanium Group will also support the DEG’s ongoing efforts with an additional $1,000 matching grant.

The March Taylor contribution is another $1,000, made to promote continuing education in the industry. Additional donations can be made to the March Taylor Memorial Fund by calling 509.543.7773.

“It is our industry, and it will only improve if everyone take steps to support key initiatives,” said Mike Sillay, North American services manager for AkzoNobel. “We encourage all members of the industry to follow the lead and support these two key initiatives.”

AkzoNobel is a global paints and coatings company and a major producer of specialty chemicals. For more information, go to akzonobel.com.
