Northwest Pennsylvania Powder Coating Pioneer
Erie Powder Coatings' roots trace back to 1969. At that time, partners Jim Cummings, Ray Erickson and Chuck Cummings pioneered powder coating in Erie, Pennsylvania. Utilizing Vinyl and Epoxy Powders, their company Fluidized-Bed Dip coated products for GE, American Sterilizer and Zurn Industries.
In 1984, John and Chuck Cummings founded Erie Powder Coating Technology in order to further promote the powder coating process. Initially, the company focused upon developing the tribo-charge or powderstatic powder coating process. Eventually, the Girard, PA plant concentrated on custom powder coating work.
Today, Erie Powder Coating continues serving the Tri-state area and beyond applying epoxy, vinyl, nylon, polyethylene, urethane and polyester coating powders for their customers. Some of EPC's customers today date back to the 1969 beginning. Operations Mgr. John (Bart) Cummings continues the tradition, established by his Father and Uncles before him, of high quality, customer-oriented powder coating work.
