Pioneer Metal Finishing has acquired Parts Finishing Group, headquartered in Auburn Hills, Mich. With six operating facilities in the United States and Mexico, Parts Finishing Group is one of the largest contract service suppliers to companies making components for domestic and international auto manufacturers.

Parts Finishing Group offers a range of coating processes, specializing in metal-to-rubber bonding, enamel and epoxy paint, and application of dry-film lubricants--services that are in high demand by manufacturers for sound and vibration reduction in new autos. 

"This acquisition is another step in our aggressive growth strategy," said Bob Pyle, president & CEO of Pioneer Metal Finishing. "Parts Finishing Group's substantial size, international customer base, and unique coating and bonding processes significantly increase our market position in the growing auto industry and add to our extensive portfolio of metal finishing capabilities."

Parts Finishing Group is Pioneer Metal Finishing's second acquisition in the past five months. In September 2012 Pioneer purchased Superior Metal Finishing of Portland, Ore. Additional past acquisitions include Nimet Industries and Dragon Anodizing. 

In business since 1945, Pioneer Metal Finishing is a nationally recognized provider of cosmetic and wear resistant coatings for the aerospace, industrial, medical, military, recreational, electronics and automotive industries. Employing more than 1,400 people, Pioneer operates production facilities in Green Bay and Oshkosh, WI; Minneapolis, Monroe, Warren and Bellevue, MI; Gaffney, SC; South Bend, IN; Portland, OR, and Queretaro, Mexico.
