At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of wood coatings (paints, lacquers, and stains).

These workers are in support of and under the control of the High Pont, North Carolina location of Valspar-Furniture Sales Group & International Color Design Center, a subsidiary of Valspar Global Wood Coatings, d/b/a/ Engineered Polymer Solutions.

Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include employees in support of the High Point, North Carolina facility of the subject firm working on-site at American of Martinsville, Martinsville, Virginia.
