Anoplate Is One Of Top Finishing Shops In North America

Products Finishing magazine names Anoplate to its 2016 ‘Top Shops' list

CINCINNATI, Ohio ‑ Anoplate has once again been named one of the best finishing shops in North America, according to an industry benchmarking survey conducted by Products Finishing magazine, a trade publication which has covered the industry since 1938.

The magazine conducted an extensive benchmarking survey that analyzed hundreds of finishing companies 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 in those four criteria.  2016 marks the second year that Products Finishing has conducted this survey and Anoplate has been named a Top Shop for both 2015 and 2016.

“Anoplate 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 top finishing shops that excelled in all four areas made the list.  Anoplate is in rare air when it comes to finishing operations.”

Anoplate is located at 459 Pulaski Street, Syracuse, NY and offers an extensive list of metal finishing services including electroless nickel, all types of anodizing, zinc and zinc alloy plating, phosphating, electropolishing and passivation of stainless steel, dry film lubrication and vacuum impregnations.

“For the second year in a row, we are extremely excited and pleased to be named one of Products Finishing magazine’s ‘Top Shops’,” said Jim Stevenson, President and CEO of Anoplate. “Our employees and management team work very hard to be the best in the industry, and to provide our customers with quality service delivered on time as promised.”
