Rick Gehman, president of the powder coating firm, also is featured in the September issue of Products Finishing Magazine.

“We’re grateful to have a team that brings years of experience to preparing and finishing metal. We trust them.”
“Top Shops” were chosen based on responses from an industry benchmarking survey.
