Following in the footsteps of his father (Gunnar Ackx), Beau in the meantime is a THIRD generation coatings inspector. You can say he has coating inspection embedded in his genes already.
Graduated as a Bachelor in Industrial Chemistry, Beau did a 3 month internship at the renowned coating laboratories of K.T.A. in Pittsburgh, PA, where he performed a study on the Cathodic Disbonding of Pipeline Coatings.
After which Beau started with SCICON as Junior Coating Inspector in January of 2020.
And as all good coating inspectors, he has already completed the NACE Level 1 Coating Inspection Training & Certification program succesfully.
The next couple of months, years, ... will be focussed on collecting more knowledge & experience for which obviously he can rely on the other Level 3 certified coating inspectors in-house.
