The Magni Group Inc. produced its 10-millionth gallon of coating product in May. The company’s coatings are designed to meet the performance criteria of customers’ fasteners, fuel and brake specifications, and a range of other metal products by resisting the corrosive effects of heat, humidity and other factors.
The company was founded in 1974 as a metal finishing operation then began developing automotive chemical coatings. In the 1980s, it grew with the automotive industry by offering corrosion-resistant coatings designed to provide metal components with a longer service life and increased durability. In addition to its automotive customers, the company now serves the agricultural, construction, heavy truck, marine, military and off-highway markets with more than 100 different coating systems.
The Michigan-based company has operations in North America, Japan, China, India, Europe and Brazil, and plans to open additional technology centers in Japan and India by next year.
