Our History: A Consistent Focus
Surface Solutions Group has over 60 years of experience in the coating industry, through our sister company, Orion Industries. We have 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 moved 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.
Due to ever-increasing customer demand, we have grown so quickly over the past few years that we expanded to a 32,000 square foot, state-of the art facility in 2016. Our operation includes a controlled environment with 11 automated coating lines and 10 manual coating lines, as well as a coating lab for evaluating and formulating coatings for specific applications. We continuously innovate to improve and expand our coating technology offerings, and work harder than anyone else in the industry to provide you with the best possible results. Our facility allows us to efficiently and accurately meet your delivery date requests. Quality and consistency matters when it comes to coatings and our ISO 13485 certification and 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 services that improve the function and safety of medical devices.
