S&B Finishing Co. Inc.
Powder Coat Chicago
For 40 years, S&B Finishing Co. Inc. has enjoyed success by staying true to the age-old philosophy of treating its clients the way it would want to be treated. This way, President Kenny Spielman says, the firm earns customer loyalty.
“Ninety percent of our customers are repeat,” he explains. “As we’ve grown the company, we’ve added new customers, but the old ones are still living with us.”
S&B has been family owned and operated since 1977. We value our more than 50 highly trained employees, who we consider family. Some have been with S&B for more than 30 years, and our average employee tenure is 12½ years.
Based in Chicago, S&B specializes in powder coating, liquid coating and multistep coating services that protect and preserve metal parts. Spielman cofounded the firm with his father, Ralph Spielman, in 1977.
However, the involvement of the Spielman family in the industry goes back to the 1930s, when they produced paints and chemical coatings under the name Capital Chemical, which they sold in the 1970s.
Shortly afterward, when his father wanted to go back to work, Spielman purchased a finishing line from a lamp company, modified it to full automation, and started S&B. A decade later, the company moved to its current Chicago location.
A staff of 50 works in S&B’s 35,000-square-foot facility, where the company coats products for Caterpillar, Ford Motor Co., Freightliner, General Motors, John Deere and many more. Additionally, S&B offers specific custom brands and finishes, including DuPont, The Sherwin-Williams Co. and TIGER Drylac U.S.A. Inc. “We try to meet the customer’s needs,” Spielman says.
We are the leading Chicagoland powder coating service that can meet specific corporate standards, and we have experience coating parts for Caterpillar, Ford, Freightliner, GE, General Motors, John Deere and other large manufacturing companies. In addition to stock coatings, we offer specific custom brands and finishes, such as Axalta Coatings, AmeriCoats, Rohm and Haas, Sherwin-Williams, and Tiger Drylac, to meet your needs in a quick and convenient manner.
Powder coating creates a hard finish and a very uniform look to parts. Different types of powder coats, such as epoxy coating, hybrids, urethanes, aliphatic urethanes, TGIC polyesters, fusion-bonded epoxies and functional coatings, have different looks and protection abilities.
S&B Finishing also provides electrostatically applied liquid coatings, such as baked enamel, polyurethane and all types of resistant coatings that are corrosion resistant.
