EFCO Finishing’s New Home Taking Shape

EFCO Finishing’s new metal finishing facilities in Menomonee Falls took some major steps towards completion this past week. The new concrete floor with drains in the new “wet room” has been finished, and will soon have our vibratory finishing and burnishing machines sitting on it! We just need that concrete to cure before moving the heavy machines in place.

Several additional blast machines were also moved over to the new location, and we continue to have more services coming on-line, in addition to our blast room, which was mentioned last week. Our team is working diligently to get all equipment up and running as soon as possible so we can continue to offer the service our customers have come to expect. On behalf of all of us at EFCO, I’d like to thank all of you for your patience and understanding in this busy time.

Lastly, the exterior painting is nearing completion, and we now even have a sign on the building, should you have to make a delivery or pickup at our new place.

It won’t be long, and we will be in with our full repertoire of services available to you in a timely manner. Stay tuned for additional updates, coming soon!

Vibratory Finishing at EFCO’s New Home

Work continues on EFCO Finishing’s new location on Fountain Boulevard in Menomonee Falls, and this past week, the vibratory finishing area took some huge steps towards completion. The area of the building that will house all the wet processes, including ball burnishing, had the concrete floor removed so a new floor with drains could be installed. These drains will collect all the waste water from these processes and funnel it to our wastewater treatment tanks, where the water will be treated before discharging, a process that has landed EFCO on the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District’s honor roll as a responsible corporate citizen for several years running now. This past week, about three quarters of the new floor was re-poured. The balance will be poured soon, and will then cure for a couple of weeks before bringing over our arsenal of machines in early August.

Other work in progress includes painting the exterior of the building, as the interior of the shop and offices was done earlier. Electrical work to get our blast machine area running also continues, and this past week, our blast room re-opened and the first orders were processed at the new building. More machines will be coming on-line soon, and we will do everything in our power to continue to process orders in a timely manner! EFCO remains “Committed to the Finish,” both for your jobs and the completion of this project. When finished, we will have a great new home to provide even better, more efficient service than in the past.

EFCO Celebrates 70 Years “Committed to the Finish”

70 years is no joke. According to the Small Business Administration, the average lifespan of a business is about about eight and a half years. It’s safe to say that EFCO Finishing has surpassed the 8.5 year mark and is going strong.

How does a company make it to that many years? By continually striving for excellence and by being “committed to the finish”. EFCO is a true leader in the industry, bringing southeastern Wisconsin and surrounding areas unparalleled metal finishing services, working to find a solution for nearly any metal finishing job. We offer great service, take on short deadlines at competitive prices, and listen to our customers. We pride ourselves on doing the job right, on the first attempt.

At EFCO, 70 years has been achieved not only from great service, but by continually growing and improving. We are ISO 9001:2008 certified, emphasizing our commitment to quality and consistency, providing services that meet our customers, and ultimately their customers, expectations. And we are consistently on the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) Honor Roll, showing our dedication to the environment by properly treating all wastewater before discharging.

Part of continual improvement also means updating our website. We wanted to provide a site that was not only full of helpful information about our services, but that was beautiful to look at, easy to use, and made connecting with us a smooth process – whether it’s via social media, phone, or our Contact Form. We want to hear from you!

More than just our processes, we’re people who are excited to work in and contribute to our community. We want to be your metal finishing provider, and we’ll do whatever it takes to help you reach your goals and be your metal finishing resource!

We have several jobs going on with EFCO at all times but one of the last hot ones (of which most are!) they got processed for us and special packed in only two days which was amazing and saved us from air freighting to our customer. Thanks!

Mark

EFCO for years has provided us with great customer service. I’ve always been pleased with the quick turn around and competitive pricing – even for our little custom jobs. I strongly recommend EFCO for anyone looking for a quality metal finish project.

In the process of product development and quotation Efco was able to provide samples of selective surface bead blast in a variety of medias. All of the options were completed in a very timely manner. Unfortunately we were not awarded the work. Efco has always gone the extra mile to provide very timely sampling and great service!

Efco did a blast job for us that needed to be done in a hurry and done right. Efco took extra care in the work and got it done in a short time frame and we were able to sell the parts to the customer and save a situation that could have been a real delivery issue if we would have had to re-machine the order.

Josh

We had a rush job we needed the laser oxide removed from the edges of the part without changing the surface finish. I had some parts delivered for a trial run and you came up with a way to stack the parts and run them through a blaster. It was a very quick turnaround that we might not have hit our deadline to our customer without.

Jennifer

We had a customer have a large drop in order of parts we supply to them. We normally have parts on our shelf that they pull from and had a small order in place for early November. When their customer dropped in the large order it took all of our stock. We had to turn another order in 1 week in order to make the ship date of the previously committed to order. We knew our portion of the manufacturing lead time, and also knew we would need parts turned from Efco in about 2 days. I contacted Terry and told him about our situation. He said that he would keep an eye out for the order and turn it around within 2 days. I told him when it was going to get to Efco, and he turned it around, just as he said. Within 2 days the order was out our door and on time to the customer. We truly appreciate Efco’s great customer service.

Recently had a HOT prototype job that required shot peen completed while holding the machine to make changes after shot peen completed. Efco completed the parts in a couple of hours! GREAT JOB!
