President’s Message – December 2014

Dear PSCT Members:

I would like to thank last months’ speaker – Gary Balint of LANXESS Corporation for his presentation on red pigment innovations. I would also like to thank Mark DePasquale for organizing the venue and menu for the November meeting. The meeting at Walnut Grill in Fox Chapel was well received by many members.

Bayer Material Science will again be sponsoring the December meeting on the Bayer Corporation Campus. The meeting will be at Freddie’s – Building #6 on the Bayer Campus in Robinson Township. If you have never been to the Bayer Campus, Building #6 is the building to the left of Building #4, which is the building with the giant “Bayer” sign. All of the funds raised from the December meeting will be applied to the Scholarship Fund for the children of eligible PSCT members. Please make an extra effort to attend. Our December speaker is Mark Freshwater, of Lansco Colors. Mark will be speaking on “The Value of a Good Pigment Formula and How to Get it!”
