Learn why our professional powder coaters care

Ray Hoover has been with Keystone Koating powder coating for nearly 3 decades.

It’s crucial to have employees who really care about what they’re doing, care about the customers, care about the outcome.

The result is that you have attention to quality the whole way through. We are blessed to have that.

A lot of our quality is underneath the surface, where you can’t see it. But if it were missing, it would reveal itself later in rusting, coating delamination, peeling and more.

The culture here at Keystone Koating is that we care about each other, that an employee here is one we look to invest in, and we look to help him or her grow in their personal life.

The culture at our shop keeps the coating on your product.

What it really comes down to for me is passion/drive to be successful. I have a passion for powder coating, being around it for 10 years. My goal is: This company is known to our customers as Pennsylvania’s best powder coating facility. I enjoy seeing customers walk away with a smile, and the credit goes to the employees wehave working here. When someone believes they work with great employees, work for a great company, and they find passion or a drive in what they do every day, it will never be easy to walk away, as long as they are finding success.”

The management team talks to you like ‘normal’ people. There’s an even playing field. It’s like having family away from home. I know I’m gonna feel good about going to work. Being named a TopShop means we’re thriving. It has to be related. It says something for our work culture.”
