Problem Solved — GFS Industrial Equipment Helps New Florida Manufacturer Bring Powder Coating In-House & Improve Turnaround Time
In an effort to fulfill a market need to deliver products to customers faster, Shellco established a new company, Simplified Fabricators to offer high-quality utility vehicle beds and storage boxes to South Florida. Bringing powder coating services in-house with new GFS finishing equipment, they hope will help cut a 15-week lead time down to four or five weeks.
With 14 years of combined powder coating experience, partners Vinnie Duecker and Justin Bolton opened their dream powder coating shop in December 2018 in Monroe, Wisconsin.
