Progressive Coating Is One Of Top Finishing Shops In North America

Products Finishing magazine names Progressive Coating to its ‘Top Shops” list

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Progressive Coating has been named one of the best finishing shops in North America, according to an industry benchmarking survey conducted by Products Finishing magazine, a trade publication which has covered the industry since 1938.

The magazine conducted an extensive benchmarking survey that analyzed hundreds of finishing companies in several different areas, including Current Finishing Technology, Finishing Practices and Performances, Business Strategies and Performances, and Training and Human Resources.

Only the top 50 shops were given the honor of being a Products Finishing magazine ‘Top Shop’ based on a scoring matrix in those four criteria. Seven of the Top Shops are located in Canada, and the remaining 43 are located in the U.S.

“Progressive Coating has established itself as one of the best finishing operations in the industry,” said Tim Pennington, editor of Products Finishing magazine. “The criteria we used was very stringent, and only the top finishing shops that excelled in all four areas made the list. Progressive Coating is in rare air when it comes to finishing operations.”

Progressive Coating is located at 900 South Cicero Avenue, Chicago, IL, and offers powder coating, fluidized bed coating including: nylon, PVC, PE, epoxy insulation, and vinyl plastisol dip coating.

“We are extremely excited and pleased to be named one of Products Finishing magazine’s ‘Top Shops’,” said Stephen Walters owner of Progressive Coating. “Our employees and management team have worked very hard to be the best in the industry, and to provide our customers with quality service.  This recognition by Products Finishing is great validation of our efforts and that we are accomplishing our goals.”
