Precision Coatings, Inc. was founded in 1988 by Matt Grundtner and began by providing ceramic coating services on magnetic recording heads for several customers in the U.S. Matt holds several patents related to plasma spray coatings on magnetic recording heads. The coatings provide wear resistance to the critical surfaces on these devices that read the strips on the back of credit cards used by millions on a daily basis. The company grew and expanded to provide arc spray metals, HVOF sprayed tungsten carbides, and flame spray metals for wear and traction. PCI currently provides a full-range of services.
