It is the second year in a row that Wolkerstorfer Company finished among the elite in the electroplating industry, but making the accomplishment even more impressive is that in 2018 the company was named a Top Shop in both the electroplating benchmarking survey, and the liquid and powder coating survey, which are done at different times of the year. – Products Finishing Magazine, award presented at SUR/FIN June 2019
To better serve our Tier 1 and aerospace customers, Wolkerstorfer Company has added Nadcap Paint certification to the list of offerings.
Wolkerstorfer Company officially passes the baton to the fourth generation naming Steffen Wolkerstorfer as President and Chris Wolkerstorfer as Chief Operating Officer. Their father, Joe Wolkerstorfer, though no longer active in daily operations, will retain the title of CEO.
50 applicants were awarded the Liquid/Powder coatings Top Shops by Products Finishing Magazine each year and we are proud to share that we were chosen for a second straight year.
The company is pleased to announce the addition of Passivation to their Nadcap certification for Chemical Processing. To support this new accreditation we have added a new 300 gallon processing line to provide increased capacity and improved turn around.

As a member of the Board she will have an influence on how our industry will continue to grow in the future.
