U.S. Chrome Corp. of New York Awarded Products Finishing's Elite 2024 Top Shops Distinction

Each year, leading coating and finishing shops throughout North America participate in Products Finishing’s Top Shops benchmarking program to gain insights for improving shopfloor practices and refining business operations. This initiative goes beyond awards, providing detailed reports from the Top Shops Benchmarking Survey that offer data-driven insights into shop performance across various key operational metrics. These reports enable shops to gauge their standing against industry peers and identify areas for improvement.


“This is the 10th year we’ve conducted the Top Shops Benchmarking Survey — a program designed to give industrial coaters and finishers a non-biased way of measuring their shop’s performance,” says Products Finishing editor-in-chief Scott Francis. “This year we’ve worked to streamline and simplify the survey process for participants, with added benefit of improving turnaround time of the custom reports we generate.”


In addition to the custom benchmarking reports, qualifying Top Shops are celebrated in Products Finishing’s various media channels and at industry events, making qualification as a Top Shop an important accolade for shops in the finishing industry. 


U.S. Chrome Corp. of New York has been selected as a Products Finishing Top Shop in electroplating and anodizing for 2024, based on data analytics from this year’s Top Shops Benchmarking Survey. 


“Sincere congratulations to the team at U.S. Chrome Corp. of New York upon achieving status as a 2024 Products Finishing Top Shop,” Francis says. “The selection process for Top Shops is based on numerous aspects of your business, and qualifying as a Top Shop is a reflection your team’s hard work and cause for celebration.”


Hundreds of shops participate in Top Shops each year, resulting in a collection of data and statistics that prove invaluable for discovering and assessing areas for growth and improvement, including finishing technology, performance and practices, business strategy and human resources.
