A Filley business has found success offering a variety of powder coating services.
Teresa Wissler has owned Filley Custom Powder Coating since 2002 along with her husband, Randy, who passed away in 2013. After Randy died in 2013, Teresa continued to operate the business.
“We’re a custom coating shop,” she said. “We don’t really do any fabrication outside of a spot weld occasionally. We’re a finishing shop and do custom work on a wide variety of items.
“We’ve done all sorts of different things. Race car chassis, lawn furniture, grain carts, trailers and really whatever will fit through the garage door.”
The shop’s customers include companies as well as private individuals.
“Some of our customers will come in and say, ‘My wife saw this on Pinterest.’ I’m guilty of that too,” said Teresa. “Most of the time we can get pretty close to what the customer is envisioning.
You have free articles remaining.
“With over 200 colors and all kinds of finishes specific to indoor or outdoor projects, we can do so many different things. We try to pay attention to the trends like a few years ago we saw a lot of retro green and pink colors.”
Projects have to be stripped down to bare metal by burning off the old finish or sandblasting. Some of the older pieces are fitted with new hardware.
All sandblasting is done by her current husband, Tom Baum.
There are six employees at the shop. Typical shop hours are Monday to Thursday from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with occasional overtime.
“This is a great place to work and Teresa is a fabulous boss. Because we have a small crew, it’s more personal. I like the work that I do. Some of the projects are really cool,” said Amy Johnson, an employee in the shop.
“I have a great crew with two good managers,” Teresa said. “We never work on Sunday.
“All of our product is something special and we take a lot of pride into the finished product that goes out the door. I think repeat customers are the highest compliment that we can get. It’s about quality work.”
