Tucked away on a side street in Dexter, MI is Alpha Metal Finishing Company. Although not as visible as a store front business, since 1976 this anodizing and chromate conversion business has endured the ups and downs of the economy and the throes of a competitive market. But the business just didn’t rise up out of the dust -- it took the imagination, skill and drive of an entrepreneur: Bob Wood.
Wood, 70, started Alpha Metal Finishing Company on a loan from a family member in 1976 and put his engineering background and skill set to work. In the early days of his entrepreneurial journey, Wood quickly identified that technology was only part of the business. What would drive the business from the beginning, and sustain it, was by providing quality product with timely delivery. And, the backbone to these core values is, and always has been, an exceptional customer experience. At the foundation of Alpha is a desire to honor God and demonstrate integrity in all relationships with employees, customers, and partners.
We have more than 160 combined years of experience in the development of specialized processes for our customers, including preparation of anodized and chromate conversion finishes for adhesive bonding.
Our Specialty department provides custom personalized services for “hard to finish” parts, including masking and plugging holes and threads. We work in partnership with our customers to develop processes to meet the special requirements of their products.
Our Production department provides services for high volume, regular production parts. We provide lot tracking, testing, and statistical process data for products requiring process traceablility. We also provide ancillary services such as special packaging for automated assembly, installation of press in fasteners, and assembly of your product.
