Our Facility

Based in Elk River, Minnesota, Preferred Powder Coating operates from a brand new 100,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility. Those who have taken a tour of our plant and offices are impressed not only by the size of the operation, but by the sheer volume of work we are capable of powder coating on a daily basis. The sheer size of our facility, the new GEMA equipment, and our line capacity enables us to accept OEM high volume parts no one else can handle, and we turn the parts quickly for customers.

In an effort to add value for our volume parts customers we have developed a Sign and Graphics department! Today our sign and graphics department can manage all your graphic needs including product labels, decals, signs, banners, convention displays, vinyl lettering, or vehicle & commercial truck wraps.
