February 2017, Houston, Texas. Whitford, makers of the world’s largest, most complete line of fluoropolymer coatings, has reconfirmed Automated Finishing Technologies (AFT) as a member of the “Whitford Recommended Coater” (WRC) program and awarded a new plaque to Johnny and Matt Rose. Perry Poradek, industry expert for Whitford, states, “AFT is uniquely positioned in Arlington, Texas, which gives them the ability to address a variety of industry sector needs from small to large-scale orders.”
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 solid quality-assurance procedures in place. Coaters in the program go through rigorous audits every two years to requalify for the program.
Founded in 1984, AFT Industries has grown from a small metal-finishing shop to an international supplier of fasteners and industrial supplies. AFT’s three in-house facilities (plating and coating, manufacturing and kitting/assembly) allow them to service any number of industrial sectors.
Adds Whitford’s Poradek, “AFT has the custom-coating capabilities required to apply Whitford’s Xylan® series of products. They have an established history of applying these products and continue to display a thorough knowledge of the different Xylan series.”
