Ecology Coatings Opens Detroit Office to Serve Automotive Manufacturers
Akron, OH and Bloomfield Hills, MI | Posted on March 5th, 2007
a leading developer of nano-engineered industrial coatings for cleaner, more
efficient manufacturing, today announced that it has opened an office in
Michigan's Detroit metropolitan area to better serve its customers in the
local automotive and manufacturing industries. As part of the company's
geographic expansion and preparation for an alternative public offering
(APO), Ecology Coatings also announced the addition of a new executive vice
president, Adam S. Tracy, Esq. Bringing both strategic business and legal
experience to the role, Tracy will help guide business development and
investor relations for the growing coatings company.
"As Ecology Coatings transitions from a technology innovator to a full-scale
commercial operation, we are preparing for increased demand and the
integration of sales with marketing campaigns. This new location enables
Ecology Coatings to better collaborate with and deliver value to one of our
key markets, the U.S. automotive industry," said Richard Stromback, Chairman
of Ecology Coatings who oversees the Detroit office. "In his new role at
the Michigan office, Tracy's ability to create and build industrial business
relationships coupled with his legal expertise will undoubtedly prove to be
an invaluable asset to Ecology Coatings as it seeks to maximize
opportunities throughout the marketplace."
"Ecology Coatings is a high growth company, a technology innovator poised to
deliver value to the large and growing global manufacturing industry. I am
looking forward to strategically planning and creating scalable, sustainable
business operations from the ground up to facilitate the company's continued
expansion," said Tracy.
In his role at Ecology Coatings, Tracy is responsible for the management of
joint venture agreements and the strategic licensing of Ecology's
proprietary technology as well as interactions with government regulators,
contracts, SEC compliance, and other legal matters. Prior to joining Ecology
Coatings, Tracy worked with the Department of Justice and major corporations
including Accenture and BP. A licensed attorney, Tracy holds bachelor's
degrees in finance and computer applications development from the University
of Notre Dame and an MBA and JD from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois.
With the addition of Tracy, Ecology Coatings' Michigan office currently
employs five staff members.
A necessary final step for nearly every manufactured consumer product,
conventional coating technologies are time and energy intensive and often
contain polluting solvents. Ecology Coatings' award-winning products address
that bottleneck by enabling dramatic process efficiencies for manufacturers
without compromising environmental and public health. The ultraviolet (UV)
curable, 100 percent solids coatings drive 99 percent reductions in time,
reduce energy expenditures of up to 80 percent and do not release any air
pollutants to the ambient environment. Requiring only a few seconds of UV
exposure to form a durable high-performance barrier, Ecology Coatings'
products are currently being applied to metals, plastics, electronics,
composites, paper and more.
