Thirty-five years of Powdertech   – Proving the value of customer relationships

September 2019 saw Powdertech proudly celebrating thirty five years as a highly successful powder coating business, anticipating ongoing achievement as we continue to our half century.

Powdertech was founded on one man’s understanding of the over-riding importance of excellence in customer relationships. Martyn Green had a conviction that ‘things could be done better’. He recognized a significant gap in the market for a company combining consistently reliable high-performance coatings with an interest in and understanding of customers’ own industries and markets. That focus on mutually beneficial, close customer relationships has been our constant philosophy.

Two companies for specialist niche sectors

Customers clearly appreciated the supportive approach and business expanded from coating Georgian bar (horizontal and vertical bars  placed across windows and doors to give a Georgian appearance) into coatings for a range of different market sectors and applications. By 1989 the volume of business lead to Powdertech becoming two companies. Powdertech (Corby) Limited moved the original Georgian bar operation from Bicester to Corby where a purpose-built plant was more suited to this specialist market. Powdertech in Bicester, now called Powdertech Surface Science, offers and develops specialist coatings and advanced bonding techniques for the automotive, aerospace and medical sectors.

Powdertech Corby grew its business into coating a wide range of products for the architectural sector. We also serve the rail industry with turnkey multi-disciplined processing. We are passionate about colour and texture and have established a range of unique colour and texture- based finishes for the architectural market, the latest of which is Evolution™, a collection of finishes which reflect the patinas caused naturally by metallic oxidation and ageing.

And thank you for working with us

Across thirty five years the Powdertech philosophy remains unchanged. We provide high quality finishes and processes with an emphasis on technical innovation, but our greatest strength remains a willingness to thoroughly understand the customer’s own business and market and to work together to achieve a final product at the highest level.
