Hixson Metal Finishing Newport Beach, CA
etal finishing has historically been known as a messy, poorly organized and managed profes- sion with little accountability and aggravation in spades for all stakeholders. But at Hixson
Metal Finishing (Newport Beach, CA), we are working to obliterate that reputation and make it as sterling as our long-time home of Newport Beach is beautiful. Through a comprehensive lean program championed by the Supplier Excellence Alliance (SEA), we have become the poster child for lean in an industry that will accept nothing less. Our goal? To revolutionize the metal finishing experience for our customers, partners, and employees.
