__~ __ ~ __~_r~_ Wright-Ryan October 24, 2006 To Whom It May Concern: Wright-Ryan Construction has had the opportunity to work with Ace Corporation on several construction projects in the past, most notably the new Cony High School project in Augusta, Maine completed.in August of 2006. Ace Corponi.tion performed their painting work according to the construction documents on budget and on time without sacrificing quality, safety or workmanship. Ace Corporation has always been willing to go the extra mile to make sure the project is done right' I would be remjss if! did not highlight Mike McFarland's professionalism and skill at running the Cony High SchooI'project. The project would not have been a success without his assistance. Our experience has shown us that Ace Corporation participates as a team player with enthusiasm and responsibility. I would highly recommend them for any painting projects you may have. I .would certainl)' use them again in the future. Sincerely,
Derek Converse, LEED Project Manager

To all interested parties,
For over five years I have been working with ACE Corporation. In that time frame I have come to know a company that is always at the forefront of business operations and practices in the coatings industry. ACE Corp has grown from a small company with a few employees painting residential houses, to over 100 employees and is now one of the largest and most respected commercial painting contractors in the New England region. ACE Corp uses the latest in technology to improve efficiencies and value engineer projects and passes these savings onto their clients. In addition, ACE Corp prides itself on working closely with owners and general contractors to insure the job is done right. ACE Corpâ€™s Management Team is the driving force behind its success. Management conducts weekly meetings with project foreman on each job, and insures ongoing training for all employees on how to be more efficient, productive and most importantly safe. Management realizes that people are its greatest asset. Most impressive, ACE Corp is revolutionizing the paint industry through its use of technology. ACE Corp is leading the charge to bring technology into an industry that is traditionally a non-technical business. ACE uses state of the art computer programs when bidding, controlling job costs and overhead costs. These programs help insure that every job is proceeding according to the scheduled plan. This also helps in planning each job so that material arrives when needed and provides the ability to move the labor force to different jobs as needed so jobs are completed on schedule. Finally, with the use of their latest technology release ACE Corp is able to quickly identify deficiencies and improvement opportunities for its employees on a real-time basis. Sherwin-Williams and the Management staff in New England are proud to be the primary supplier to ACE Corp. Please feel free to contact me at any time to learn more about ACE Corporation.
