Owner Ben Bredo brings 25 years of industry experience to Valley Powder Coatings, and leads the day-to-day business by managing the front-office details, taking care of marketing and sales for the company, and overseeing the production operations.
Ben began his career with Quality Custom Coating, and was a project manager for 11 years with J R Stephenson Manufacturing Ltd., working primarily on their military contract with the US company General Dynamic. He spent his last two years with J R Stephenson as Sales Manager for the Mechanical Division before becoming the Marketing and Operations Manager at Quick Coatings Ltd., and following that, owner of Valley Powder Coatings.
Valley Powder Coatings Ltd. began almost two decades ago in Winkler, Manitoba by Pete and Brenda Dyck. Initially, it was a finishing service centre for Carte International Inc., who had one of its two production facilities located next door. Upon Pete and Brenda’s retirement, and Carte’s movement of all production to its Winnipeg facility, Valley Powder Coatings moved to its current location in Winnipeg to continue providing reliable service to Carte, while also expanding the business to new clients.
How we operate
At Valley Powder Coating, superior attention and care is given to every product, by way of our experienced technicians, thorough staff training and high-quality equipment processes.
Once your order is received, and the parts to be finished arrive at the shipping door, a work order is written up on the system, and the parts are tagged with the job specifications that follow it through every step in our process.
In the facility, parts first move through a five-stage preparation treatment dipping process, which includes an alkaline cleaner, a rinse, a phosphate, a second rinse and then a sealer. After preparation, the parts are sent to the powder booth for the coating application, followed by baking, cooling, and finally, packaging for shipment back to our customer.
We guarantee a 3–5 day turnaround on parts coated at our facility, in addition to 100% satisfaction with your finished product.
More about powder coating
The powder coating industry is tied directly to the manufacturing sector, as it is essentially the finishing process for many different types of manufactured metal parts, including appliances, hardware and car and bike parts. Powder coating involves the application of a free-flowing, dry powder onto manufactured parts, which when heated, fuses into a hard, protective layer.
The powder coating industry has grown steadily over the past number of years due to its cost-effectiveness, durability and environmental safety (no VOCs) compared to liquid-coating finishes.
