Preferred Powder Coating's success is seated in planned production methods. We offer the quickest standard turnaround in the industry. We strive for a 3-5 business day turn on all products. The majority of parts and projects leave our plant in less than 3 business days.
Preferred Powder operates out of a new 100,000 square foot purpose built plant conveniently located in the north metro area near the junction of highways 10 and 101.Built specifically for powder coating our building features a 26 foot high ceiling, 10 dock doors and 2 flat loading ramps to accommodate rapid logistics.
Preferred Powder has 3 large dock trucks we use for picking up and delivering loads of parts. If you have a full truck [approximately $2000 worth of paint] we will pick up and deliver for free. For orders under $2000 delivery can be completed for $135 each way. Please let us know your needs and we will attempt a solution that meets both party's needs.
Preferred Powder has a highly experienced and diverse work group with talents from many industries including fabrication, die casting, machining, automation, liquid painting, foundries, and welding to name a few. Being so well rounded allows us to bring a wide variety of extensive life lessons to bear on both potential problems and possible solutions. We understand how parts are manufactured which allows us to help with solutions.
Preferred Powder is currently implementing a plant with a paper free monitoring system giving all employees access to all relevant data to do the job correctly. The information includes all prints, all production data, masking and packaging information. We want all employees involved at all levels.
ROBOTIC LINES & BATCH AREA
Preferred Powder has 2 fully robotic, fully automated lines that are mirror images of each other meeting in a large climate controlled area in the center of our plant. This climate controlled center area also holds more than 700 powders that we stock from all major powder manufacturers. The robotic lines each have a manual assist area on either side of the robotic booth to facilitate coverage as needed.
We also have a large batch area that allows us to powder coat odd sized parts too big to fit on the lines. Cleaning and titration chemical composition are the same on both our automated and batch lines.
