Finishing a product requires more than just a can of paint and a spray gun. Finishing is both an art and a science. The good news is that you don’t have to be an artist or a scientist to get a great finish. Finishing a product is a process that can be done methodically and with the proper knowledge and training even an unskilled worker can be taught how to achieve a great finish on your products.

Having been in the finishing industry for 40 years I have accumulated a significant amount of knowledge and experience that I can use to help you achieve excellent results. I have spent the last 10 years training finishing department personnel on how to improve finish quality, productivity, environmental and safety compliance while at the same time reducing or eliminating rework, reducing VOC emissions and waste stream generation, reducing finishing costs and reducing operating and maintenance costs.

If you are looking for ways to improve your finishing process or you are in the market for new finishing products I can help you achieve your goal. I offer a variety of services that are custom designed to meet your needs. These services include: finishing process audit, equipment and coating analysis and recommendations, surface preparation, product handling and orientation, fluid delivery and application equipment optimization,  supervisor, operator and maintenance  personnel training, development of standard operating procedures, quality assurance procedure  development, coating and color change process improvement,  material handling, storage and waste disposal, fluid and air line layout and design,  paint kitchen design,  waste stream management, preventative maintenance, troubleshooting and repair, spray booth optimization, curing process improvement, regulatory compliance and complete finishing system layout and design. Other services are available upon request.

Since I do not work for or represent any equipment or coating company I can offer unbiased recommendations regarding your finishing process issues.  However, since I have worked or represented some of the largest manufacturers of finishing products in the world, I have many valuable resources that I can rely on if needed. Whether you need help in laying out your finishing process or you are interested in purchasing coatings, finishing equipment, spray booths and ovens, I can work with you to design and specify the right products to meet your needs. I can submit your requests for quote from credible suppliers and then I can review those quotes for and with you and make my recommendation as to what the best products would be for you to purchase along with whom to purchase them from.

Whether you are a small business or a large corporation I can help you improve finish quality, improve productivity, reduce your coating and solvent use, reduce rejects and rework, reduce waste stream generation and I can save you a lot of time, money and aggravation. All you need to do is ask.
