New Nautical Coatings, Inc., which makes Sea Hawk, Hawk Epoxy and Captain Jack’s brands of paints, has a program designed to transition military veterans into permanent roles in the company. The M2C program offers military veterans the opportunity to repurpose and hone their military skills into the ones necessary to succeed in the marine coatings, manufacturing and sales business. Recent hires included Michele Durham as an operations specialist and Shannon Evans as a paint compounder.

“New Nautical Coatings’ new M2C program is a forward-thinking way of coaching and transitioning military veterans into meaningful roles within the growing Sea-Hawk and Hawk Epoxy brands, said Erik Norrie, CEO of New Nautical Coatings Inc., in a statement. “Our new M2C program, Military to Civilian, is developed to show homage to our military veterans, giving them opportunity to join talented professionals and leaders in the marine special coatings industry.”

Through the M2C program, New Nautical Coatings plans to add military veterans to key functional areas of the enterprise including manufacturing, operations and sales as it expands its Sea Hawk, Hawk Epoxy and Captain Jack’s brands of marine coatings and private label product offerings.
