Longtime Chemcoaters Director, Bill Krippes, Retires

Chemcoaters, Gary, Indiana, Bill Krippes, Director of New Product Development, is officially retiring from Chemcoaters on July 28, 2018, after 16 years of dedicated service.

Bill has been in the coil and mill-applied coating industry for over 46 years, serving in R&D, Technical Service, and Sales roles. He started his career developing products for JM Eltzroth before moving on to spend more than a decade at PPG specializing in mill-applied coatings, with a specialty in dry film lubricants (Chemform) and mill-applied zinc phosphates. In 2001, Bill brought his experience and knowledge to Chemcoaters in Gary, Indiana. While here, Bill has been a staple of the organization.  His expertise in dry-film lubes for stamping and his product development skills have helped advance Chemcoaters’ core business and aided in educating a future generation of employees.

In August, Bill will officially retire but will continue to serve as a New Business Development Consultant. In that role, he will continue to help Chemcoaters’ customers find coating solutions to overcome issues with stamping and corrosion.

As Bill moves into his new consulting role, Brit Capizzano will move into the role of R&D manager.  Brit has spent the last 6 years under the guidance and mentorship of Bill. Moving into the future, Chemcoaters will continue to provide customers with unique coating solutions and unparalleled expertise.
