Commercial Case Study
Ready to make a change?
Tru-Cast Inc is a working foundry facility located in Greensboro, NC.
The problem to be solved:
Tru-Cast Inc had some external equipment that was severely faded, rusty, and had flaking paint. The customer wanted this equipment painted while ensuring that foundry operations could continue unaffected. This involved close communication between the painting crew and foundry foreman. Equipment had to be switched off at a time that didn’t affect operations, but was of sufficient length to wash and paint them. Even with 40-foot boom lifts, some areas of the equipment were challenging to reach, making masking off inner workings difficult. Another challenge was limited water access, necessitating extra long hoses for pressure washing.
Our team began by planning the timing of certain aspects of the job with the shop foreman. Then the team worked around the foundry schedule, and some unanticipated weather, to complete washing, priming, and painting.
It took the professional team from CertaPro Painters of Greensboro slightly over a week to complete this project in September of 2021. The owner was very impressed with the results. See examples of the work below!
