Powder coating broadens company’s markets in a tough economy
Hesitant at first, a family owned Nevada ornamental iron business reinvents itself when it finally switches from liquid to powder coating to meet home builders’ demands.
The Sclafani family has spent more than 2 decades forging its ornamental iron business from a small 600 square foot building in Henderson, Nev. Founders Fred and Sylvia moved to Henderson, the state’s second largest city (pop. 270,000) in the early 1980s from Southern California. ”My father was always involved in some type of construction trade,” said son Tony Sclafani, vice president and general manager in charge of daily operations.
