Paulo’s Murfreesboro Division is a 2016 Top Shop

The Murfreesboro Division has been named one of the best finishing shops in North America, according to an industry benchmarking survey conducted by Products Finishing magazine, a trade publication which has covered the industry since 1938.

The magazine conducted an extensive benchmarking survey that analyzed hundreds of finishing companies 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 in those four criteria.

“Paulo’s Murfreesboro Division 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 top finishing shops that excelled in all four areas made the list. Paulo is in rare air when it comes to finishing operations.”

Plant Manager Dave Timken says, “It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the top metal finishing shops in our great country!  Paulo has always been dedicated to providing the best quality and service to our customers.  This has all been made possible by the vision and drive of our management force and the engagement and dedication of all our team members.   We look forward to continuing to serve our existing and future customers as we strive for excellence through continued improvement!”
