About Our Client

My client began by offering coatings for industrial purposes: you wanted it, you sent it; they coated it. In fact, one of the pioneers in the development of electrostatically applied powder coatings, Applied Plastics have been working with medical OEMs for over 30 years. As a result of their attentiveness to customer needs, the company started to receive more and more requests for lubricious coatings, higher volumes and continuous lengths of wire.

They are now in a period of continuous growth and are looking to add to their engineering team.
