This article reports on the trends in the pre-painted coil industry in the U.S. Having experienced a roller-coaster year in 2005, North American coil coaters are optimistic about their business in 2006, because inventories are more in line with demand. According to John Mitchell, president of the National Coil Coaters Association and manager of marketing and business development for Nichols Aluminum of Lincoinshire, Illinois, demand for coated coils fell about 7 percent in the first half of 2005, with pre-painted steel showing more weakness than aluminum.
