Amazing and innovative things just keep coming from Cortec, bravo!


Daniel Paskvalic  @ 10/02/2021 10:02:28

Once again it is the demonstration of your vision and your talent. I once told you that I considered you as a Bill Gates, in the business world of corrosion. Today I think you are Elon Musk.

You make reality what others say can't be,

Stenmoe Gregory  @ 10/02/2021 09:02:02

Nice article! Yes, thanks to those “real idiots”, lots of hard work and smart business decisions, you have been blessed beyond equal!


Jim Holden  @ 10/02/2021 09:02:39

An excellent article on initiative and being focused on a goal. Not many people can tell the boss to get lost and then show them what a success you became. It has been a pleasure knowing and working for you and Cortec over the years. Looking forward to the future.

Dear Boris and Ines,

I am very happy with this recognition of the talent and creativity of Ines ... I share the joy and pride that both have!

With my kindest regards

Dear Boris,

Your kind words are deeply appreciated. Is a noble gesture of genuine integrity. And, thru the so many chapters of life, you know as I do, that this kind of person are very...very rare. Thus, I also owe you a big thanks

Since the first day I always felt good because of our working relationship and personal friendship based on mutual esteem, honesty, loyalty. And, these 20+ years have enriched -day by day- this relationship and friendship. I very much understand the emotions and frustrations because we are all human beings and often I feel inside myself the very same frustrations not being able to improve the results, to deliver what is expected.

But tomorrow is a new day, we raise our head and go back into the daily fight committed to do better all time.

Again, a personal and sincere thanks, dear Boris, for your understanding, patience and -no matter what- continued support. And, since we come from the same world and same generation I sincerely express my unended gratitude by working with you, the right person, the right company and the right friend

With Paola a big hug to you and Ines

Peter Begich  @ 26/01/2021 09:01:46
Congrats Boris and thank you for sharing.

Along with your visionary and leadership strength, certainly it is paying off after many challenges both past and present. These sales and margins number growth are exemplary despite pandemic and logistic issues.

Hello Boris,

I would like to say Thank you so very much for the Chairman’s award! I am very honored to be one of the people chosen! Very happy to be a part of the “Cortec Family”! I look forward to a great year ahead in 2021! I think of you often, and hope both you and Ines are staying healthy. I have your mom in my thoughts, as well. It’s so difficult to not be able to physically be with family! Can’t wait for the day I will be able to hug my mom, again!

Thanks again, Boris!

Jason Rowe  @ 14/01/2021 03:01:09

This afternoon Angie informed me that I am one of the recipients of the Chairman’s Award for this year. Thank you for selecting me as one of those individuals receiving this award.

This is an unexpected surprise, its still sinking in, however I wanted to say thank you.

I hope you and your family are staying safe, and that the world improves so that I can thank you in person the next time you are back at White Bear Lake.

Have a great week.

Steven Cartlidge  @ 07/01/2021 03:01:23
Excellent information Boris. Cortec always provides high quality technical data. It is one of the many hallmarks of a great company.

Stenmoe Gregory  @ 04/01/2021 09:01:02

Happy New Year to you and Ines!

This has been a tumultuous year, but once again you have survived and thrived!

I am truly grateful for the opportunity and honor of working with you over all these years. And I look forward to many more!

All the best,

Dear Boris,

Thank you very much for the Christmas bonus, what a surprise! It is much appreciated.

We learned today of the devastating earthquake in Croatia. We will keep Croatia in our prayers.

Happy New Year to you and your family. May 2021 be brighter and prosperous for all!!

Warm Regards

Merry Christmas Boris and Ines!

We’re certainly glad we’ve pulled through this year and are grateful for Cortec. Boris your leadership and positive messages were inspiring. We’re optimistic and hopeful that next year will see us get back on track for sustainable growth. Mostly we look forward to seeing you and our Cortec family as soon as that opportunity arises.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!

You guys are AMAZING!!!!

Boris, you do realize that, with all of the high end waterfront living going on around here and the EXTREMELY HIGH COST OF SEAWALLS, (most of which are in a state of deterioration because they are so expensive to replace), you could essentially reinvent the entire market with your product??? The average expected life of a seawall is 30 years, give or take. This article says your proprietary product makes them last 5 TIMES AS LONG.

I’m just saying……You have accomplished so many brilliant proprietary inventions, fortification of seawalls to last 5 times longer would be HUGE, both for homeowners, developers, not to mention major general infrastructure projects ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND WORLD!!

I know that the circumstances that brought you to me were less than ideal with that nasty litigation with trashy greedy people, but I have to say, even though I consider that one of my biggest legal losses of my career to date, it turned out to be one of the best gains of my career in that I gained the two of you in my life forever. I really treasure our professional relationship and friendship. I love you both so much and wish you a very very happy holiday!!


Mark Bergin  @ 18/12/2020 10:12:37
Hi Boris, Nice to hear from you. I will forward this news release to my editor to see if this is something we're interested in covering. I'll follow up with you if we want to pursue a story. Thanks for sharing this with me. Happy holidays to you and Ines as well!


Jorge Flores  @ 16/12/2020 03:12:33
Hi Boris

Patricia Hockert  @ 14/12/2020 04:12:09
Good afternoon Boris,

Thank you for this gift. It has been a tuff year, but generosity like this is unexpected and wonderful. I am proud to work for a company that cares about its footprint on the environment and a leader who values the efforts of the company’s employees. I hope you and your family have a peaceful and joyful holiday season.



Steve Pearl  @ 14/12/2020 04:12:48
Good Morning Boris and JoAnn,

I know its been a challenging and sometimes unpredictable year, but were are still here fighting each day for the Cortec cause. Your bonus gesture is a kind one and greatly appreciated. Especially knowing the circumstance we are living through. Thank you very much and have a nice holiday season!


Ana Juraga Oluic  @ 14/12/2020 04:12:02

Oh my goodness Boris! Thank you so much for the bonus! That is very generous of you during this time

I have loved working for Cortec since the first day I walked through the door, not just because you are generous with bonuses every year, but it truly feels like family to me (good and bad sometimes. LOL).

My family and I wish you and Ines a wonderful Christmas and a happy and prosperous new year!

Thank you,
