MASSILLON, Ohio (January 29, 2020) — Success launching and selling a new disruptive technology to oil & gas customers during the industry’s worst-ever economic downturn has Tesla NanoCoatings, Inc. forecasting a boom of activity in 2020.
Hawkins said, “Tesla NanoCoatings has experienced substantial growth in the last year that will see even greater sales increases in 2020.”
The company has developed corrosion-control coatings used to protect metal assets — such as offshore oil platforms, drill ships and other steel assets— in highly corrosive environments like seawater.
“In the new year, the company expects to expand operations and double sales,” added Hawkins. Tesla also aims to increase its operations and sales in the Middle East through a joint venture in Saudi Arabia.
“It’s exciting,” Hawkins said. “There’s a lot going on; things happen pretty quickly here.”
One of the advantages of using Tesla NanoCoatings’ (“Teslan®”) is its user-friendly application, Hawkins said. The coating includes a primer and a topcoat, which is applied directly after the primer, he said. Eliminating the waiting period between the two coats makes the application process more efficient and reduces the risk of contamination, Hawkins said.
Joe Davis, vice president and sales engineer at Tesla, referred to the company’s coatings as the “next generation of technology.” Davis, an industry expert in the coatings industry for 30 years, spends at least 50% of the year traveling to sites where “Teslan®” is used. While in the field, Davis works to generate additional business and trains clients in applying the product.
