Our History

Although Surfaces Solutions Group hasn’t been around long, we have over 60 years of experience in the coating industry. Our parent company, Orion Industries, has over 20 years of experience in coating medical devices alone. Due to the growing customer base in the medical device industry, Orion created a separate company called Surface Solutions Group. We moved into our own stand-alone facility in 2008 that was only 8400 sq. ft. and in 2016 to our new state of the art 32,000 sq. ft. facility.  Our long history with coatings equips us with the knowledge of what it means to provide the best end results.

State of the Art Facility

We have grown so fast in the past years that we expanded to a 64,000 square foot, state of the art facility in 2016. Our operation includes 11 automated coating lines and 10 manual coating areas, along with a coating lab for evaluating and formulating coatings for specific applications. We continuously pursue perfection and work harder than anyone else in the industry to provide you with the best possible results. Our new facility allows us to meet your requests more efficiently than ever before. Quality and consistency matters when it comes to coatings and our ZERO FDA recalls is proof of that.

Every company has an end goal in mind. At SSG, our main focus is to better the medical industry by providing coating technologies and application that improve the function and safety of medical devices.
