Company Profile

In 1978, the Onoda Company of Japan developed the most technologically advanced powder coating equipment available on the world market. Onoda has been a large, diversified, and multinational supplier of industrial, commercial, and municipal construction materials for more than 115 years. The Onoda powder coating equipment was first made available in the United States in 1987. A variety of patents clearly set this equipment apart from the competition in establishing performance standards. Nihon Parkerizing Co., Ltd has been the premier supplier of metal surface treatments in Japan since 1928. Nihon Parkerizing, in concert with its strategic partners, has created an international network of cooperative ventures, affiliates, and subsidiaries. All of these have worked to advance the company's vision of creating new functions for materials, and developing new and more effective surface treatment equipment technology. In 1995, the Onoda Ionics Division was purchased by Nihon Parkerizing Co., Ltd, and became Parker Ionics. The Onoda brand of equipment was improved and is now sold under the Parker Ionics name. As of 2001, the Parker Ionics equipment commands a 52% market share of all powder application equipment sold in Japan. After its introduction in the U.S., it quickly became recognized for its durability and excellent transfer efficiencies. Parker Ionics headquarters is located in Westland, Michigan, only 10 minutes away from the convenient Detroit Metro airport. Parker Ionics has over 10 qualified distributors in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The Parker Ionics user-friendly electrostatic powder application equipment ensures enhanced transfer efficiencies, component flexibility, and low-maintenance products.
