Products Finishing magazine names Orion Industries to its “Top Shops” list
CINCINNATI, Ohio – Orion Industries has 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. Seven of the Top Shops were located in Canada, and the remaining 43 were located in the U.S.
“Orion Industries 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. Orion Industries is in rare air when it comes to finishing operations.”
Orion Industries is located at 5170 N. Northwest Hwy, and offers Teflon® and other non-stick dry lubrication coatings with tolerances down to +/- 3 microns. Orion is a full-service coating facility with manual and automated coating lines, including electrostatic application, dip-spin coatings, automatic and manual grit blasting, and robotic application equipment. Orion is certified in ISO 9001:2008, AS9100 C and ITAR Compliance.
“We are extremely excited and pleased to be named one of Products Finishing magazine’s ‘Top Shops’,” said George Osterhout, president of Orion Industries. “Our employees and management team have worked very hard to be the best in the industry, and to provide our customers with quality and service.”
