From powder coating through to anodising and zinc plating, the finishing subcategory includes a range of practices. The companies outsourcing projects of this nature to our members have a total value of £7,488,000 – majority of which (34%) comes from niche industries with a much smaller standing amongst buyers of alternative processes. 30% of these projects are equally split amongst the industrial machinery, electronics and consumer products industries. The marine sector - along with oil/chemical/energy - was also reflected in the results, with each of these two industries accounting for 7% of all finishing services purchased.

Below is a list of the finishing processes we cover, with links to their description, suppliers and projects.
