Precision Coating Technology & Manufacturing, Inc. (PCTM) has a long history of providing quality finishes for the powder, industrial, functional, and custom coating industries. PCTM’s one-of-a-kind engineered solutions approach has made them the go-to finishing provider for companies looking to solve difficult production challenges.
The company has a proven track record of helping product designers, engineers, and OEMs boost production efficiency and manage costs, and even prevent expensive product redesigns.
PCTM offers a range of specialty finishes including traditional electrostatic spray powder coating, using both the batch oven technique and continuous conveyor line operation. Also offered are: PTFE and other Fluoropolymer coatings; dry film lubricants; liquid dip plastisol coating; and coatings using the fluidized bed technique.
PCTM was founded in 1988 by Tim Kissling and began in a 3000 sq. ft. facility in Reinholds, PA. Prior to starting his own company Tim worked in the powder coating industry in various capacities including sales and marketing for over 15 years. Tim founded PCTM with the goal of creating a company that focused on the relationship between functional performance; coating selection; and feasible, cost-effective application.
By 1998 the operation had expanded and needed to be moved to a larger facility located in Ephrata, PA where it occupied more than 16,000 sq. ft. The continued growth of the company led to the purchase of a new facility in 2008, located in Denver, PA. After completely renovating the 48,000 sq. ft. facility, Precision Coating is happy to call this their permanent home.
With the additional space, PCTM was able to purchase more equipment to better meet the needs of both current and potential customers. In 2012 PCTM purchased the 5 stage pretreatment conveyor line from J&M Custom Powder Coating and moved the conveyor line to their facility. In 2014 PCTM purchased Coating Technology Inc., and relocated the operation to the Denver location, which expanded their presence in the dry film lubricant market. These acquisitions have rounded out their ability to offer a full line of finishes that cover a broad spectrum of application needs across the metal finishing industry.
“We make sure the process is a functional as the coating.”Tim Kissling, CEO

His daughter Patricia manages the office and his wife Marjorie is the bookkeeper. Several of the employees who started with the business in its infancy still continue to serve in various capacities to this day; thus adding to the family atmosphere.
