Customer Support and Training programs

ITS Coatings has a dedicated team of technical experts at each of our locations to provide prompt assistance and guidance to clients regarding product selection, application techniques, troubleshooting, and any other technical queries they may have. We provide thorough commissioning and training for the equipment supplied by us. A well-stocked inventory of spare parts and accessories are maintained.

Annual Maintenance Contracts are offered to clients that help prevent unexpected breakdowns and ensures optimal performance throughout the equipment’s lifespan.

The clients are educated on the benefits of mechanized paint application techniques and also enlightened about the advantages of using mechanized methods, such as increased efficiency, cost savings, precision and consistency in marking applications.

Environmental Considerations

 The formulations include very low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) in the traffic marking paints. By reducing VOC emissions, air pollution is minimized. The ingredients and raw materials are carefully selected for minimal environmental impact.

The Company encourages the clients and educates them about the benefits of using water based paints that have lower VOC emissions rather than solvent-based alternatives.

We are one of the five approved suppliers accredited by AAI and supply to over 60 airports across India, including Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Chennai and also export to a few countries. The paints are also approved and used by several Sea Ports and CFS operators and in NHAI projects. We have recently supplied our paint for Race Track Markings in Reliance Greens at Jamnagar.

The Company’s involvement with the Road marking industry started in 1999 and we are considered the oldest distributor in this segment and a key supplier to several customers across India for a range of high quality thermoplastic paint raw materials. With 25 years of experience in the road marking segment, we have developed a deep understanding and expertise into the nuances of traffic  marking paints.

Addressing the evolving trends and challenges in the airport and road infrastructure sector

The traffic safety and safer roads have become the need of the hour. We are quite upbeat about the road / airport marking industry in India given the fact that growth & development in the infrastructure industry has increased exponentially over the past 10 years. The future for the road / airport industry is certainly bright and we wish to continue making positive contributions in time to come.
