Precision Coating Establishes Costa Rica Operations

Precision Coating (PCCI) is establishing operations in Costa Rica, with a new plant to be operational by the end of July 2016.

PCCI is headquartered in Hudson, Massachusetts. The company provides custom coating services, including the application of medical polytetrafluoroethylene to orthopaedic devices such as augers used in drilling applications. The durable, abrasion-resistant coating is designed to withstand higher rotational speeds, while tight coating tolerances and low friction properties of the coating allow the device to be deployed easily.
