Answering the need of the Aerospace industry for specialized metal finishing capacity, Advanced Coating Techniques was founded in 1974 as a 3-man operation in a 500 square foot building. The company sought and received approval from Grumman Aerospace Corp in 1975.
In 1980, Sikorsky Aircraft, a leading manufacturer of helicopters for both military and commercial use, granted processing approval. As the reputation of the company grew, the Boeing Company, McDonnell Douglas Corp, BF Goodrich, SAAB-Sweden, British Aerospace, BAE Systems and Airbus also granted processing approvals. With the approvals given by Menasco, a supplier of landing gear, British Aerospace, manufacturers of the Airbus in 1995, and Lockheed Martin, Advanced Coating Techniques became a supplier to all major aircraft manufacturers.
Producers of commercial aircraft such as Cessna and Gulfstream Corporation have also issued approvals for processing of their material by Advanced Coating Techniques. Continuing to the present, Advanced Coating Techniques has maintained its approval status with the aerospace prime contractors and is responsive to the changing requirements of the industry.
Serving the Aerospace, Military, Medical, Electronic, Automotive, Computer and Aircraft Industries, Advanced Coating Techniques has become a supplier of non-destructive testing and finishing technology to manufacturers all over the world, with Flight Safety and Fracture Critical Certification as well. Our customer base extends to Canada, France, Great Britain, Sweden, and Japan.
