LOS ANGELES, CA, APRIL 07, 2020 – Two (2) California Valence Surface Technologies out of twelve (12) locations are ranked in the top fifty operations in the North American electroplating survey. Valence Garden Grove facility ranked in the top 50 and Valence Lynwood was selected as the number one finishing operation in North America for 2020.
Products Finishing’s annual Top Shops benchmarking survey expands across the North American electroplating and anodizing industries to measure more than 50 metrics to determine the best operating practices such as lead times, first-pass quality yield, on-time delivery, finishing equipment usage, environmental manage hours, parts inspection hours, analytic testing hours, hazardous waste management hours, and formal training hours.
A measure of the capabilities of the Lynwood facility is the experience of the management team. “Our management team, which is still intact, knew the supply-chain pain points involved on both sides,” explains Chris Grapsas, Vice President Sales and Marketing. Ashok Advani has spent 33 years at the company. The quality manager, Jess Lozano, has 26 years at the company and the production manager, Jorge Ortiz, has 46 years.
