Our Story

The CPI Solution Squad™, who is on the front-lines with paint engineering teams every day, saw that companies needed a better way to provide finishing system training. So we started asking questions.


  • Where do engineers new to paint go to learn the fundamentals? 
  • What if a seasoned line manager could reach out to colleagues in the pretreatment community to troubleshoot a vexing problem? 
  • How can we bring the learning needs of the paint-line industry together in one place
