PF top shopsOur friends at CCAI (Chemical Coaters Association International) are offering you the chance to take a bench-marking survey to find out where your shop ranks in the Liquid Paint or Powder Coating industry for the year of 2016.

The Top Shops Zone of PF Online also contains a link to the survey. The companies who complete the survey will receive 3 reports: an Executive Summary, Plant Type and Plant Size. These reports will provide you with valuable data on the powder coating/liquid painting job shop market with bench-marking intelligence for future improvement.

As an added bonus, Products Finishing magazine will also recognize the top 50 shops in the US in an upcoming issue of PF. Please note: the survey is ONLY FOR liquid and powder coating operations in the US.
