The magazine conducted an extensive benchmarking survey that analyzed a company in several different areas, including Current Finishing Technology, Finishing Practices and Performances, Business Strategies and Performances, and Training and Human Resources.

Only the top 50 shops were given the honor of being a Products Finishing magazine ‘Top Shop’ based on a scoring matrix of those four criteria. Paulo’s Murfreesboro division was a Top Shop in 2016 as well.

“Paulo has established itself as one of the best finishing operations in the industry,” said Tim Pennington, editor of Products Finishing magazine. “The criteria we used was very stringent, and only the finishing shops that excelled in all four areas made the list. Paulo is in rare air when it comes to finishing operations.”

Dave Timkin, Murfreesboro Plant Manager, commented, “We are very pleased and honored to be acknowledged as one of the Top Shops. The entire Paulo team is focused on giving our customers consistent quality and excellent customer service. It’s only because of the team commitment that we have such success in supporting our great customers.”
