Question:

I was wondering if you could send me the formula for pricing powder coating? I will be opening in 45 days and can use all the help you can provide. P.W.

Answer:

There is no magic formula for pricing powder coating services. Some job shops use actual costs and mark up the service for profit and overhead. Others price their services based upon market value. There are several companies who sell computer programs that can be used for estimating coating services and for tracking project costs and progress. These companies are listed in the 2002 PRODUCT FINISHING DIRECTORY AND TECHNOLOGY GUIDE or under the Suppliers database at www.pfonline.com. I recommend that you contact one of these companies to obtain a software package.
