Products Finishing magazine names Seminole Metal Finishing to the ‘Top Shops” list

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Seminole Metal Finishing has been named one of the best finishing shops in the U.S., according to an industry benchmarking survey conducted by Products Finishing magazine, a trade publication which has covered the industry since 1936.

The magazine conducted an extensive benchmarking survey that analyzed a company in several different areas, including Current Finishing Technology, Finishing Practices and Performances, Business Strategies and Performances, and Training and Human Resources.

Only the top 50 shops were given the honor of being a Products Finishing magazine ‘Top Shop’ based on a scoring matrix of those four criteria.

“Seminole Metal Finishing has established itself as one of the best finishing operations in the industry,” said Tim Pennington, editor of Products Finishing magazine. “The criteria we used was very stringent, and only the finishing shops that excelled in all four areas made the list. Seminole Metal Finishing is in rare air when it comes to finishing operations.”

Seminole Metal Finishing is located at 967 Explorer Cove, Altamonte Springs, FL 32701 and offers commercial and Mil-Spec electroplating;
• Zinc Plating (ASTM B633)
• Bright Nickel (QQ-N-290)
• Electroless Nickel (MIL-C-26074)

• Zinc Phosphate (DOD-P-16232 TY Z)
• Passivation (ASTM A967, ASTM A380, & AMS 2700) (Lockheed Martin Approved)
