LIMA, OH, May 5, 2016– MetoKote Corporation’s Lima, Ohio facility, was awarded the Supplier Performance award from Cardington Yutaka Technologies, Inc. at their annual Supplier Conference held April 21 in Waldo, Ohio.

MetoKote has been providing high-temperature, liquid paint services to Cardington Yutaka Technologies for their exhaust components for over 15 years. This award was granted for the outstanding scheduling flexibility and part turnaround given to Cardington throughout the past year.

“The plant staff and employees are very excited to win this award,” stated Mark Blasiman, Sales Account Manager for MetoKote Corporation. “We view Cardington as a partner and we strive to offer them top-notch service along with an exceptionally well coated part.”
High-temperature resistant coatings are designed to withstand temperatures ranging from 300° F to 1,200° F while providing excellent protection against corrosion. MetoKote provides two color options to Cardington, silver and black, and apply the single-component material utilizing two highly efficient robotic systems. Heat resistance coatings are primarily used with exhaust system components due to the extreme temperatures to which these components are exposed.
