|Peter McQuillen, now President of The Finishing Line, began painting conventionally in the mid 1980’s when he opened a commercial painting business (Duzmor Painting Inc.) operating from 1986 to 1997.
In 1996, Pete became seriously interested in powder coating and decided to buy the property where The Finishing Line is now located. With one existing building on site of 2000 square feet, Pete added another 6000 square foot addition to house large pieces of powder coating equipment that he moved from Houston, Texas via freight train.
With limited funds and financing through the contracting business, one year later and months of time testing completed, The Finishing Line was ready for production! The first high production powder coating system in the area was born!
The first large production job for The Finishing Line, Pete recalls..
“We were contracted to apply 100% acrylic coating to 300,000 spindles per year for the Mercury Villager and Nissan Quest mini vans through the Ford Motor Company – making The Finishing Line a
“Tier One Automotive Supplier“!
Today The Finishing Line Co. is a 13,500 square foot facility:
One automated main line, one automated mini cell system, three batch booth areas, clean room for intricate masking, plus a preparation room.
|Pete’s vision today..”not only meeting the needs of high quantity production customers but extending our capabilities and expertise to perform custom / one-of-a-kind powder coating work for individuals and small business customers”|
