Welcome to BC Metal Finishing

BC Metal Finishing (BCMF) was formed in 1987 by Brian and Sonia Carroll supplying Metal Finishing Chemicals in particular pretreatment chemicals. They were eventually joined in the business by their two children David and Michelle.

If you are considering installing a new pretreatment plant or changing your existing system, then we will be pleased to assist with your requirement. Over thirty years we have accumulated considerable expertise and knowledge of the industry so as to advise on the most suitable equipment and process to meet each individual application.

Originally the business concentrated on phosphate pretreatment chemicals establishing its business on the quality of the products supplied and the service given which the customers appreciated. Recently BCMF have formed a relationship with the largest suppliers of pretreatment chemicals in Europe enabling it to keep at the forefront of new technology.

Over the years the company has had a natural digression into other closely related areas one of which has been the supply and fitting of nozzles, standpipes and quick release fittings. This has resulted in the retrofitting of over fifty pretreatment plants replacing the steel with the plastic pipework system.

Another area which BCMF has been heavily involved with is the supply and installation of automatic dosing equipment this being evident on most of the installations supplied with pretreatment chemicals. This can be from a simple dosing pump to a fully computerised system.

BCMF act as consultants on any aspect of finishing mainly related to pretreatment and powder coating. They have worked very closely with many major plant suppliers to ensure the smooth transition of finishing plants from conception to installation. BCMF also offer analytical testing and on site control of pretreatment plants. Brian Carroll has also written several technical articles which have been published in the trade magazines.

BCMF is helping to reduce the carbon footprint having become involved with the Carbon Trust on energy saving devices. This has resulted in the supply of Variable Speed Drives and Fully Modulated replacement gas burners giving considerable cost saving by reducing the amount of energy used.

Recently BCMF have taken on an agency with Polybond to supply PCS Powders and Acron Paints in the north of England. These further compliments the range of products offered.

At BCMF we feel with the range of products we offer this gives us a good position to deal with the present economic climate.
