Orion Named One of 2019's Top Finishing Shops in the U.S.
Products Finishing magazine has named Orion Industries to its 'Top Shops' list, acknowledging the best operating practices of liquid and powder coating facilities in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
CHICAGO, October 9, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Orion Industries has been named one of the best finishing shops in the U.S. for 2019, according to an industry benchmarking survey conducted by Products Finishing magazine, a trade publication that has covered the industry since 1936.
The magazine conducted an extensive benchmarking survey that analyzed 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 of those four criteria.
“The criteria we used was very stringent, and only the finishing shops that excelled in all four areas made the list. Orion is in rare air when it comes to finishing operations,” said Tim Pennington, editor of Products Finishing magazine. “Orion has established itself as one of the best finishing operations in the industry.”
In fact, Orion is the largest automated applicator of Teflon® coatings in North America and has been a Chemours (Dupont) Teflon® LIA (Licensed Industrial Applicator) since 1979.
“Consistently reproducing precise coating applications — time after time and part after part — is always our team’s focus,” said George Osterhout, Orion president. “Being named one of Products Finishing magazine’s ‘Top Shops’ reinforces our commitment to quality, which is evident in every aspect of our process — from inspection to coating to shipping.”
