Ace Anodizing and Impregnating in Hillside, Illinois, says it worked on many of the powder coated parts being installed in the new Starbucks Rotisserie that recently opened in Milan, Italy.

“Almost everywhere you look in the new roasting facility, you can spot our parts” says Mike Battaglia, Ace’s vice president of sales and marketing. “While we are proud of all the work we do, it is extra special to see our work in such an iconic facility opened by one of the most recognizable brands in the world.”

He says Ace also is proud to have been chosen as the vendor of choice for other similar projects, like the Starbuck headquarters in Seattle, Washington.

“Our expanded capabilities introduced earlier this year have allowed us to become quite competitive in almost all markets,” he says.  

Ace’s capabilities include anodizing, chromate conversion, powder coating and resin impregnation. The company is ISO 9001:2015 certified and says it can handle parts as long as 282 inches. Visit acemetalfinishing.com.
