aerospace MILITARY & DEFENSE FINISHING EQUIPMENT

Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS) has a long history and excellent reputation with the U.S. government’s defense organizations in designing, building and installing state-of-the-art paint finishing equipment. When the U.S. Air Force needs to paint fighter jets or large C-17 transports, it uses GFS paint booths to ensure performance coatings are applied in an optimal, controlled environment.

We don’t just work with big government. GFS has designed and built finishing equipment for city and state governments throughout the U.S. Our finishing equipment and systems also can be found in Canada, Mexico and around the globe.

In addition to government and defense organizations, we work with aircraft and component manufacturers, as well as maintenance and repair facilities, to create end-to-end finishing solutions and paint finishing environments. This allows them to achieve high-quality paint finishes, improve productivity, reduce rework and protect the health of their employees.
