Crest Coating Celebrates 50 Year Anniversary

Crest Coating Inc. is celebrating 50 years of innovation, collaboration and transition. Crest Coating provides powder coating and exotic liquid coating services in two modern buildings totaling over 50,000 sq. ft.

Crest Coating was founded in 1967 by Dave Erickson and Mike Erickson, a father and son team. In the 1960s, Crest Coating specialized in aerospace projects and building customer relationships. In the 1970s, the company became more involved in finding solutions for aftermarket appliances. It worked with new customers to supply innovative engineered solutions, and added conveyors to specialize and diversify its offerings. "During this time, it became the first company to apply electrostatic powders, a common technology used today in the industry," said a company spokesperson. During the 1980s, leadership was passed to Mike Erickson, current owner and President, who led the expansion into high volume powder applications and automated some of its blast facilities to better meet the needs of customers. "Also during this time, Crest Coating designed a compact powder tunnel, giving it an advantage over most manufacturers whose tunnels were large and cumbersome," added the spokesperson. From the 1990s into the 2000s, Crest Coating developed a more durable coating system for antennas for major automotive companies, received GM greenlight approval and installed two new wash lines. In 2010, current Vice President, Jeff Erickson, joined the team to make Crest Coating one of Orange County's unique third generation family owned businesses.

Today, Crest Coating has large capacity conveyorized coating lines, large and small batch capabilities, and provides silk screening, light assembly and packaging services for its customers. The company supports a variety of industries including waterworks and fasteners, aerospace and defense, automotive and others.
