KMI Systems has long been recognized as a leader in the porcelain-enamel finishing industry. We provide well designed, innovative porcelain coating equipment and furnaces. KMI also designs and constructs various paint finishing systems tailored to our customers' needs.
KMI’s founders first became involved in porcelain (inorganic) finishing systems in the mid 1960’s when they were an integral part of Ferro Corporation’s finishing systems team. For over 35 years, they have been continuously setting industry trends in engineering, quality and cost savings.
Our experience in paint (organic) finishing systems dates back to the early 1970’s. KMI’s engineers became involved with the design and development of E-Coating (the electrodeposition of water-based paints) for the appliance industry. In the 1980’s, they also were instrumental in the design and development of Powder Paint systems for the appliance industry.
KMI excels at determining and fabricating the type of finishing system that best fits your needs . . . to be competitive and stand out in this market place. We provide experienced project teams who are committed to you. Our engineers, salesmen, system designers, field supervisors, and maintenace personnel will provide personalized and attentive customer service.
KMI Systems has completed numerous projects of various sizes and has the organization, leadership and design knowledge to carry out finishing equipment projects costing from thousands up to millions of dollars.
