MFN becomes the Official Cooperation Partner of NACE
In the completely globalized world of today, networking and cooperation are of much higher importance than ever. MFN is always evaluating strong new potential partners to maximise its means. NACE International is the leader in the corrosion engineering and science community, and is recognized around the world as the premier authority for corrosion control solutions. It has 22,000 members in over 100 countries. NACE International is involved in every industry and area of corrosion prevention and control, from chemical processing and water systems, to transportation and infrastructure protection. MFN, having traditionally a global approach with all its activities, is very pleased to announce that it has become Official Cooperation Partner of NACE.
NACE is also hosting the world's largest annual Corrosion Conference called CORROSION. More than 5,000 industry professionals and 350+ exhibitors from around the world attend the NACE Annual Corrosion Conference and Exposition each year. Furthermore, NACE International training courses and certifications are the most recognized and widely accepted programs in the world. The training offered does not teach a specific skill or trade, but rather prepares every student for a comprehensive career in corrosion. This opens the door to more career opportunities and higher earnings potential. Their goal is to develop corrosion professionals that can support their mission of protecting people, assets, and the environment from the effects of corrosion.
Since MFN, with its international publication and training platform, has in certain areas similar goals and strategies as NACE, there are a lot of synergies to benefit from. Not only as far as networking is concerned, but also because both parties accumulate a lot of expertise in the field of training and organizing events and have access to technical specialists around the globe. Last but not least, the partnership shall also improve the international exposure of the two organizations.
There are still lots of other possibilities for cooperation on additional levels. In any case, this new partnership between NACE and MFN has great potential to be mutually beneficial and successful.
