BFG Manufacturing Service provides coating services including plating, painting, preapplied sealants, and resin impregnation on customer owned products on a contract basis. Our customers benefit from our broad knowledge and experience with coating processes and methods. Our capabilities for new process start up and production line installation in coating areas has resulted in 21 new processing lines added since 1998 most centered on customer specific needs. We often provide trucking service to and from our plants maintaining optimum service turnaround and cost.
BFG began operations in 1947 in Punxsutawney as BFG Electroplating and provided a broad array of electroplating finishes. BFG began a transition to focusing on automated zinc plating in 1980 and was early in the adoption of the more environmentally friendly methods for plating that are in wide use today. The early focus on automation helped the company provide high quality reliable service and led growth at a much faster rate than our industry and opportunities in other finishes that our customers needed.
In 1998 BFG began an 8 year process of building new facilities to completely replace its original locations and equipment. We have new facilities, equipment, processes and methods in place. These changes have led to efficiencies in all aspects of our processes from personnel and chemical productivity to low energy use yielding a stable long term solution to our customers needs for coating. These improvements have also provided the most environmentally friendly coating service possible, and a record of compliance that is a great pride to our management and employees.
