Microfinish: We’re Different

Lots of businesses say they are different from their competitors. Just because you say it does not mean it is true. Here at Microfinish, we really are a step above other finishing companies because we go a step beyond to ensure quality, timely and lasting metal finishing services for your parts. Here are just a few reasons why Microfinish is different.

Microfinish has been finishing metal for a long time. In 1959, our founder Stan Smith began our shop in his basement tumbling stampings to remove burrs and smooth the surface finish of parts. This improved their “Microfinish” and the name stuck. Over these six decades, we’ve moved out of Stan’s basement into a state-of-the-art 240,000 square foot facility that meets the needs of almost 500 nationwide customers.

Microfinish has metal finishing experience within a wide variety of industries. We supply coatings to nine different automotive companies, as well as leaders in the home appliance, heavy equipment, electrical, lawn & garden and communication industries. Whether you need finishing on one piece or a million, we give your order the attention it deserves. Microfinish is really a one-stop shop for mechanical finishing, plating, e-coating and St. Louis industrial powder coating services.

Microfinish holds important certifications and industry memberships that improve quality and protect the environment. For example, Mcrofinish is proud to be ISO 9001:2015 certified, a certification that means that the products, services and systems of Microfinish and other companies who are ISO certified measure up to a level of quality adhered to by companies whose products and services are sold around the world.

We are also members of the A-TEAM sponsored by Products Finishing Magazine, Microfinish is constantly working to evolve our industrial powder coating services through ongoing engagement with the industry’s leading custom coaters. This elite program benefits our customers through its unique approach to cross-learning opportunities and its focus on developments, trends, and technologies surrounding the industry.

Microfinish is also a proud member and several of the management staff are actively involved in the National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF), a trade group that promotes the surface finishing industry in North America in a variety of technical, scientific, business, and environmental areas.

Our organization is also compliant with REACH Regulation for Finishers, a European Union guideline that governs chemical substances and their effects on the environment and human health. REACH is the strictest legislation in place, and this has direct impact on the surface finishing industry. Microfinish has met and exceeded these regulations for almost twenty years.

Microfinish wins awards a lot of them. These include eight consecutive years as a Top Shop in electroplating and anodizing by Products Finishing magazine and an expertise award in powder coating also from Products Finishing magazine. Our environmental efforts were commended with a 2021 Gold Award by the Missouri Water Environment Association for our superior commitment to clean water as part of industrial wastewater pretreatment. The dedicated professionals here at Microfinish not only comply with all federal, state and local environmental rules & regulations, but we take steps beyond these guidelines to demonstrate our commitment to the environment.

Microfinish really is different from other metal finishing companies for these and many other reasons. You don’t have to take our word for it.
