Established in 1991,
Alloy Polishing Co. has gone through many changes, the most noticeable
being our name. Originally named Alumachrome Polishing and Truck
Detail, the business offered mobile
metal polishing and truck detailing to the trucking industry.
Quickly gaining a reputation
for quality, the company
soon received requests for polishing automotive items. Since these
parts are processed differently, the appropriate equipment had to
be acquired. With a couple weeks of ‘volunteer’ work
in a production shop back East we were ready to expand into this
type of work - all the while offering the mobile polishing and pressure
Today, we are focused solely
on polishing and only those
items ‘small enough to get through the front door’.
This includes alloy wheels, engine parts, stainless trim, production
work, antiques, and many other ‘interesting’ items
that customers have brought in to be processed. We have also had
the opportunity to serve customers literally from all over the United
Bigger is not always better.
We have chosen to remain a small, service oriented company, focusing
on the utmost in quality control, treating each customer and each
job individually. This is also reflected in our production work,
offering unsurpassed quality, and timely service.
About the owner:
My name is Dave Barr, and at the age of 25, I was introduced to
polishing while restoring a set of wheels on a car I was working
on. The rest, as they say is history. I was so intrigued by the
results, I researched the subject, only to learn that metal finishing
is actually a big part of our daily lives From lamp fixtures to
silverware, metal finishing is everywhere. Presently, I personally
do all of the custom polishing, insuring the quality finish and
damage free processing of your unique items.
The training I received as a
polisher, is the best kind:
experience, I am completely self -taught, although I did have help
getting pointed in the right direction. Once on my way, I took it
upon myself to learn to be the best polisher there is. Some of the
advantages to this are: I didn’t pick up any other polishers
bad habits, nor did I pick up the ability to say ‘that’s
good enough’ when it comes to the quality. The disadvantages
would be the many long hours spent perfecting the art. Often times
our customers are amazed at the transformation their items have
gone through, and are very happy with the finished product, and
it’s at this time, all the hours spent are worth every minute.
After ten years, we are proud to offer a true, show quality polishing service that meets and often exceeds our customers expectations, whether you have one set of wheels, or an ongoing production contract, you will be able to see what show quality is all about. We look forward to serving you, as a customer of Alloy Polishing Co.
