Fencemaker stakes claim on quality by adding powder coating capabilities
A fabricator installs a powder line to back up its tough warranty and implements a quality-control program to fence off its competitors.
Elite Fence Products, Harrison, Mich., makes aluminum ornamental fencing and applies powder coatings because of their weatherability, durability, and costs compared with liquid finishes. Workers assemble most fencing components after coating. The company runs its coating line for one shift 6 days a week.
