Always finish strong.
Component pre-paint process.
To save time and production cost, some competitors build complete assemblies, then paint them afterwards. However, this often leaves behind inconsistent paint finishes, gaps in paint coverage, unsightly painted hydraulic and electrical lines and more. With our component pre-paint process, we paint individual components before assembly—levers, handles, brackets and more—then we assemble the complete unit, already fully painted.
Our component pre-paint process helps ensure a better-looking, longer-lasting, higher-quality finish on all painted surfaces with more consistent coverage providing greater corrosion resistance over time. Most importantly, component pre-paint delivers to our customer the quality paint finish you deserve and puts your company image in the best light possible.
