The Products Finishing Top Shops Benchmarking Survey for the liquid and powder coating segment yielded interesting statistics about how coating shops run their business, as well as some best practices that many others should emulate.

The 40+ question survey conducted this spring gave job shop and captive coaters a chance to share their production information, with a promise of detailed data in return to help them fine-tune their operations to align themselves with the best in the finishing industry.

“Our ultimate goal is to become the Top Shop,” says Burkard Industries’ Jay Burkard. “We are working on long-term sustainable improvements. It is paying off as sales are currently up over 32 percent versus last year in the first six months of 2016.”
