In 2002, the companies merged to complete the transition to a full-service coating house, offering complete custom coating. ACI currently offers a wide range of services from part preparation, including media blasting, custom masking and chemical conversion coatings, to Military Specification liquid coating applications, powder coating finishes and part identification capabilites. Automated Coatings now serves a large customer base and has maintained a premier NADCAP certification since 2003.  The addition of the automated liquid coating line in 2008, complete with infrared baking capabilities, strengthened the company’s large batch capabilities.  ACI has continued to be focused on high quality finishes and fast customer service to this day.
