Whitford confirms Teknicote as a premier Custom Applicator in the U.S.

July 2018, Rumford, Rhode Island. Whitford, makers of the world’s largest, most complete line of fluoropolymer coatings, has confirmed Teknicote of Rumford, Rhode Island, as a member of the “Whitford Recommended Coater” (WRC) program and awarded a plaque to Steve Dolan, President of Teknicote. David Carlsen, industry expert for Whitford, states, “With over 50,000 square feet of production space and its ISO 9001 – 2015 standard in place, Teknicote continuously meets and exceeds customer expectations for quality coatings.”

The Whitford Recommended Coater program recognizes custom coaters who meet certain criteria. Among them: the coater must have thorough knowledge of Whitford coatings and experience in applying them, must complete a Whitford training course held at the worldwide headquarters and must have certain quality-assurance procedures in place. Coaters in the program go through rigorous audits every two years to requalify for the program.

For over 46 years, Teknicote, a specialty surface-finishing company, has focused on the industrial, commercial, electronic and medical OEMs. Achieving Whitford’s recommended-coater status completes the company’s commitment to a process-driven, diverse line of surface finishes for major manufacturers throughout the northeast.

Adds Teknicote’s Steve Dolan, “Becoming a Whitford Recommended Coater dovetails perfectly into our overall marketing strategy of further penetration into the medical-device, oil and gas and food-processing markets. We now have both the high-quality coatings and in-depth technical support and advice that are the hallmark of Whitford Worldwide.”
