About Us

Providing Finishing Solutions Since 1988

Our History

Since our inception in 1988 (known then as “New England Metal Finishing, Inc.”) we have provided superior finishing services for industries including automotive, aerospace, medical, and firearms. In 1995 we began to offer ‘job shop’ services as needed by our clients.  Our expert team keeps pace with changes and advances in the finishing industry so we can offer our clients the most effective and on-target finishing solution for every need.

Why SurfacePrep Northeast Region?

We offer clients a complete range of equipment, consumables, linings and molds necessary for each application – along with a detailed process recommendation – so they can produce the best end result possible.  As a job shop, we work closely with manufacturers from all industries to determine their specific finishing requirements for each part. Using state-of-the-art equipment, our highly trained process specialists analyze your surface finishing needs and utilize our lab to assist in developing the optimum process for your parts.

Our Location

Our fully equipped workshop is located in the heart of the Connecticut River Valley and is easily accessed from major highways and Bradley International Airport.

SurfacePrep Northeast Regions’s leadership team has decades of experience in the finishing industry serving a wide range of manufacturers throughout the region.
