The Powder Coating Institute (PCI) recently named Sue Ivancic, an account executive in Nordson Corp.’s powder coating division, to its board of directors. Ivancic begins her term immediately. Prior to being appointed a board member, she served as PCI’s education committee chair and as the PCI events subcommittee chair.  “The board’s vote to appoint Sue came as a result of her level of involvement in PCI and dedication to our ongoing efforts to promote powder coating technology,” says Trena Benson, PCI executive director. Ivancic has worked in the powder industry for more than 38 years. In her role at Nordson, she guides the aftermarket support for the company’s powder coating equipment direct accounts in the United States. In addition, she supports trade show activity and handles the execution of powder coating basic workshops. Ivancic also manages the newly opened Nordson University (NU) in Amherst, OH. NU is a powder coating education center, backed by Nordson’s experienced and qualified professionals. It provides a hands-on learning environment to teach best practices relating to powder coating equipment and processes to industry professionals.   “The PCI board of director’s position was always a goal of mine,” Ivancic says. “I really consider it an honor and feel very fortunate to work with – and learn from – all the other industry experts on the PCI board.” PCI represents the North American powder coating industry, promotes powder coating technology and communicates the benefits of powder coating to manufacturers, consumers and government. A non-profit organization, PCI works to advance the utilization of powder coating as an economical, non-polluting and high quality finish for industrial and consumer products.
