Acquisition of the Teknicote and Medicote

It is with great pleasure that BEST Engineered Surface Technologies announces the acquisition of the Teknicote and Medicote businesses.

The BEST Engineered Surface Technologies organization is focused on acquiring and integrating geographically disbursed coating application businesses. These acquisitions contribute new or diverse coating technologies that enable BEST Engineered Surface Technologies to meet the expanding needs of its customer base.

The President/CEO of BEST Engineered Surface Technologies, William Faucett, said this of Teknicote/Medicote: “It is unusual to find such a well-run, disciplined and organized family business available on the market.” We are excited at the prospects that the Teknicote/Medicote organization brings to the company. BEST Engineered Surface Technologies will do everything possible to support the Teknicote/Medicote business, both from a financial and directional standpoint. The philosophy of BEST Engineered Surface Technologies is that the company does not sell coatings it sells “quality and service” and that it is always important to be as seamless as possible to the customer as well as to employees when it comes to change.

BEST Engineered Surface Technologies d.b.a as Teknicote/Medicote will strive to be the “BEST” coating service provider to its customers in both the Northeast and in the Southeast with the BEST Engineered Surface Technologies d.b.a Windsor Metal Finishing.

Although Steve Dolan has retired, he will continue to support the company during the transition period. Jeff Nathan will remain an active executive with the company managing the Teknicote/Medicote business as the Vice President of Best Northeast.

Jeff Nathan states that, “I am excited for the next chapter of the Teknicote companies. With the additional support of the Best team we look forward to new technologies, systems and growth to further enable us to deliver great parts on time!”
