OUR HISTORY

Contract Plastic & Metal Finishing


 

Craddock Finishing is a third generation family-owned business providing OEMs with painted enclosures and sub-assemblies. Paint application has always been an integral part of the manufacturing process.

Incorporated in 1934 as a proprietary dining room furniture manufacturer, the mid 60s found the company a contract television/stereo cabinet producer for Zenith, RCA, Admiral and Sylvania. However, a fire in 1972 destroyed the woodworking plant causing a major shift in the focus of its business activities… a focus it has maintained for 39 subsequent years.

It is said that politics makes for strange bedfellows and so too the contract finishing business.
