Ms. Milis Rodrigues, Technical Sales Manager at Jotun Coatings in Brazil, has for a 2-year period been appointed as NACE Section Chairman in Brazil.

The main aim is to expand NACE's programs in Brazil, preparing a new generation of corrosion professionals and increase the local level of safety and technical education.

NACE International is recognized around the world as the premier authority for corrosion control solutions. The organization has more than 60 years of experience and over 20,000 members in more than 100 countries.

Ms. Milis Rodrigues will hold the position as leader of NACE's section in Brazil, in addition to her daily duties in Jotun.

"Milis is committed to lead the overall improvement of the Brazilian quality in asset protection and safety of people and environment, which clearly will bring Brazil to become more competitive in our industry", says Michael Bak, Managing Director Jotun Brasil.

Jotun Brasil has over the last couple of years had all coating advisors through NACE level 1. All senior advisors are certified to NACE level 2. With this certification, the advisors have sufficient knowledge of specialized coating materials and techniques, and they are qualified to perform advanced coating inspections.

Jotun implemented a couple of years ago an extensive training program, referred to as "TEAM NO.1", which includes certification to the best standards and practices in the industry. Following this, Ms. Milis Rodrigues implemented together with Team Trainer Miguel Cavalcanti, an in-depth training program including NACE, first aid and fire fighting program.

"Today we can truly claim that Jotun Brasil holds the best trained and certified staff within our industry in Brazil. We will continue this effort in the future by having our new employees trained accordingly", says Michael Bak, Managing Director Jotun Brasil.
