American Coatings Show 2022

Check out what is going on at our booth (#2537) at this year’s ACS. We can’t wait to see you there!

ERP Roll-out Summer 2022

Following a successful implementation of our new ERP in the United States, Infor M3 will be rolled out to fulfill all customer orders starting on July 11, 2022.  This will also mark the end of processing customer orders through our legacy QAD system which served Dominion Colour Corporation for many years. Customers will immediately recognize the change with the new order fulfillment documents they see along with other improvements (see New Order Confirmation document below).  Each month leading up to the change we will use this space to highlight some of the changes Infor M3 will bring including a change in payment instructions for customer purchase orders.

  • Customer Addresses – The Order Confirmation will show three addresses for the customer.  The customers Mailing Address (2), Physical Address where this delivery is to be made (3) and the address where the invoice is mailed (4). 
  • Dates – The Order Date (1) we received the customer’s order and the expected Delivery Date (7) are indicated on this document.  Our new ERP has a sophisticated logistics module which calculates shipping times between the warehouse of the ordered product and the customer to time shipment releases.  Our plan is to confirm an expected delivery date at the time an order is placed.
  • Order & Product details – On the order confirmation we will include the Customer Order Number (5), which is standard practice, as well as the Customer’s Code (6) for our product.  Many of our customers have established their own internal raw material codes corresponding to our branded product.  We will store customer aliases for our products and print them on the order confirmation as another step to improve communication in the order fulfillment process, especially with our customers outside of the US where this feature has not been available.
  • Charges – An estimate of any applicable charges (8) is summarized on the Order Confirmation with detail by order line in the body of the document.  For customers in regions where VAT or HST is collected these charges will be shown in detail.

New North American Literature

In preparation for the American Coatings Show, we have updated our North American Literature, including the Pigment Directory and individual brochures for Coatings, Powder Coatings, Plastics, and Inks.

The European Pigment directory was updated in September (in anticipation of the European Coatings Show that was cancelled). We will be updating our international brochure this year, stay tuned!
