Custom formulations, accommodated.

Strathmore works closely with the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) industry to safeguard a wide range of products and equipment. Since 1942, we have provided customized solutions for each of our OEM customers. With an experienced staff on hand, we can determine the right OEM coating formulation no matter what abuse a product or facility is subjected to.

Our technical team performs individual project-line evaluations to understand how to design the most effective and efficient coatings system. When the operating environment poses specific challenges, we collaborate with our customers to devise a solution based on the demands of the application site.

Comprehensive support, with guidance.

Upon initial analysis, we develop a customer-tailored OEM paint system. Our staff can also provide a cost analysis for the job and assist in the proper equipment selection for the application process.

Whether it’s pumps, pipe and tube, trailers, BBQ grills or wind turbines, we have the ability and expertise to accommodate jobs of all sizes.
