The Products Finishing Top Shops were selected from an online benchmarking survey conducted in December-January. The 40+ question survey asked questions in a number of areas related to the finishing industry.


Based on those answers, we calculated which finishing operations were the "Top Shops" as it pertained to finishing technology, operations, best practices and business operations.
