My Story

As a 20 year veteran of the painting and restoration industry, it was natural to turn to this side of the coatings business.

Necessity is the mother of invention

In 2004, I was frustrated with painting liquid paint on metal air conditioning registers for a local resort.  By then, I had experience restoring boats and furniture under my belt.  I was a master painter but was tired of slow dry times, surface rejection, and endless primer coats.

Ever the “do it yourself-er” I was seeking a new way to achieve that perfect metal finish. That’s when I found out about powder coating.    I was immediately intrigued by the process of powder coating and the perfection of its finish.

Today, I have built this company from the ground up so that I can provide my customers with the quality finishes that I wanted for myself.

Now, I want to share my expertise in metal coatings; painting and restoration so that customers can navigate the process of powder coating and make the best choices for getting their projects done.

Join me as we build a powder coating community in Hawaii and around the world to share our passion for performance finishes.
