Southwestern Plating named a “Whitford Quality Approved Coater”

September 2015, Houston, TX. Whitford, makers of the world’s largest, most complete line of fluoropolymer coatings, has launched a “Quality Approved Coater” program in the United States that recognizes a limited number of coat- ing applicators who meet strict criteria set by Whitford.

The program was originally tested in the oil industry in Asia, where it met with great success. It consists of a select group of applicators who have proven their capacity to provide coated fasteners that meet a list of strict standards established by Whitford. Its objective is to assure consistently high quality in coated fasteners.

Now it comes to the United States, and Southwestern Plating of Houston, TX, is the first member to qualify for Whitford’s QAC award.

Southwestern Plating is a customer-focused metal finishing and industrial coatings company that has served manufacturers in diverse industries across North America and around the globe for more than 65 years.

Reports Bill Pernice of Whitford, “We’ve got nothing but praise for the team of dedicated personnel at Southwestern Plating for their continuous improve- ment in meeting the rigorous QAC requirements that we’ve set, and doing so in record time.”

Says Matt Ferguson of Southwestern Plating, “We thank Whitford for this unique recognition and for the conistently high level of technical support that they have always provided us.”
