Published on 2003-06-05. Author : SpecialChem

The Nova Paint Club, an international organization encouraging the sharing of technical and other expertise between independent paint companies across the world, has celebrated its 20th anniversary with a gala dinner on the 18th May.

The glittering occasion was held near Stuttgart in Germany and was the culmination of a 3 day Nova Paint Club conference. Attendees at the conference included the Nova Board members and senior technical representatives from each of the 14 member companies. The gala dinner event was followed by a spectacular fireworks display in the dramatic setting of Schloss Hohenheim.

The night was a chance to recognise the contributions of key individuals to the success of the Nova Paint Club. Nova President and managing director of Votteler GmbH & Co. KG, Dr. Rainer Votteler presented the President's Award to Jose Nogueira, technical director of the CIN Group, for his contribution to the Club over 20 years. Mr. Nogueira was a delegate to the first Nova convention in Cannes in 1983 and is current chairman of the Nova Technical Co-ordinating Committee. Peter Lovell, another attendee at the inaugural Cannes meeting, was presented with a certificate recognising his efforts as secretary general of the Club for the majority of the last 20 years.

The Nova Paint Club provides a framework for leading independent paint companies to take advantage of the knowledge, experience and expertise of their peers from across the globe. The Club meets regularly and the next meeting is scheduled for October 2003 in England.

Current members are Votteler GmbH (Germany), Asian Paints (India), Barloworld Australia, CIN (Portugal), Cloverdale Paint Inc (Canada), COMEX (Mexico), Ilios Cotachem (Greece), SIME (Malaysia), Pintuco (Colombia), Barloworld Plascon (South Africa), Sinteplast (Argentina), Tambour (Israel), Vogel Paint Inc (USA) and Valentine (Spain).
