The Electrocoat Association’s mission (see About Us tab) is all about education – creating learning and networking experiences that make a real difference in your work, your business and even to the technology itself through new, innovative techniques and products.

Currently we produce the ECOAT Conference, presented in even-numbered years;  an annual Electrocoating Seminar that travels to various regional locations with a strong manufacturing base;  a book, Electrocoat:  A Guidebook for Finishers; and, beginning in June, 2018, our new Webinar product. 

We also provide educational programming and speakers for co-sponsored events and are in the development stage of several online resource tools.

    Register for Electrocoating Cure Ovens - The 2020 COVID Tour

    Finishers choose electrocoating to provide their products with a durable, lasting coating. After applying the coating, a bake oven crosslinks and cures the paint film, making it hard and durable. This presentation will foster an exchange of knowledge to help the novice learn the basics of electrocoating cure ovens, allowing them to be an informed participant in the e-coat process.

    Tom Neeley is a licensed Professional Engineer who holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology and a Master’s in Industrial Management. Having worked for George Koch Sons, LLC in the finishing industry for the last thirty-three years, Tom has designed systems, managed projects, and developed finishing equipment for a broad range of industries. His work spans from theoretical to hands on troubleshooting and analysis. A builder at heart, he enjoys seeing a system design come to life for a manufacturer.

    Living in the small town of Newburgh, Indiana on the Ohio River, Tom has been a long time Scout and 4H leader. When not spending time with his wife and two daughters, he canoes, kayaks, and spends a lot of time not shooting ducks.
