Solent Powder Finishers Ltd was established in 1982 by the current Chairman, Godfrey Sumner. Godfrey wanted a business that would focus on people – employees, customers and suppliers.
The focus of the company has always been on a strong customer care ethic and nurturing relationships – we always aim to go above and beyond our customer’s expectations. An indication of our success is that we are still trading with two of our original customers from 1982.
In 2004 we began ‘total supply’ for several customers and this led to our expansion in 2007, incorporating a small machine shop, fabrication division and a third coating line.
Godfrey is currently phasing into retirement but the company remains in the family with his daughter, Helen as Managing Director. Helen has worked alongside Godfrey for 17 years so has a good understanding of the company’s core beliefs.
