Decades of industry knowledge help guide smart coating equipment choices.

As Crest Coating Inc. has grown over the years to now occupy 50,000 square feet in Orange County, CA, we’ve continually reinvested profits to upgrade equipment. The latest in equipment technology keeps us up-to-date on new coating techniques, assures the highest quality coated products, and allows us to offer the widest range of services to our clients.

“Our equipment keeps getting better and better because we know what to ask for in our equipment,” explains Crest Coating Vice President Jeff Erickson. “Our decades of experience continue to pay dividends as we upgrade equipment to stay on the leading edge.”

Over its 50-year history, Crest Coating has been a consistent innovator and industry leader. We were the first company to apply electrostatic powders, which is now a common practice. The company took the lead in designing a compact powder tunnel, which also gave us a competitive advantage at the time.

In industry-specific initiatives, Crest Coating created a more durable coating system for antennas, which major automotive manufacturers quickly adopted. And, perhaps Crest’s most lasting impact, our still-ongoing role in co-developing the U.S. bakeware industry to feature non-stick coatings, such as Teflon™ Coating and Xylan®, on many consumer products and commercial baking supplies.

Crest Coating’s equipment expertise covers both functional and decorative coating services. Our total production can be characterized as being approximately 80% functional and 20% decorative. In both categories, Crest prides itself on our staff’s deep product and application knowledge, the company’s reputation as an industry leader, and our day-in-day-out customer service and shop cleanliness. Many equipment upgrades are focused on quality assurance systems such as inspection equipment and calibration tools, as well as keeping Crest’s dedicated test lab up-to-date.

At Crest, the bottom line is: We solve problems. We stock a wide variety of materials, offer a wide variety of services, use the latest in production and inspection technologies, and deliver the highest quality finished products.
