THE ROADMAP OF VALUE STRATEGIES IN COATINGS
Francisco Z. Rácz & Washington T. Yamaga (R Y & Associates) for Paint & Pintura April 2020
In the recent Forums of Paint & Pintura Coatings Magazine, in particular the one held in last March in Fortaleza, we presented the paths of added value in coatings. A discussion on the need to manage contribution margins through the product offering appreciation and an appropriate pricing policy.
The repercussion of this discussion in the new pandemic times reinforces the urgency to implement sustainable practices to protect business values and also to reduce business risks.
DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION & THE COATINGS INDUSTRY
Francisco Z. Rácz & Washington T. Yamaga - R Y & Assocites Paint & Pintura March 2020
On one hand there is a mismatch of chemical industry in emerging countries, in relation to other more advanced markets in the world. On the other, there is the opportunity to modify the use and manufacture of paints through advanced digital resources. The digital transformation in emerging countries can happen before many industries are expecting. The high-productivity digital integrated modules for clears, catalysts and colors are already being designed and produced in Brazil and exported to developed countries.
