D & K Powder Coating was founded in 2013 by Dana and Kathy Schnepf. The original shop was located off of Riverfront Drive. From the start, D & K Powder Coating provided high quality powder coating and excellent customer service. With these simple yet essential business values, D & K Powder Coating was immediately competitive, and business grew rapidly. After only 2 years they had outgrown their shop, and a new facility was built in upper North Mankato. The new building allowed for new growth in many ways, and media blasting services were added. As business continued to grow, an expansion was built in 2018 that doubled the size of the shop. Today D & K Powder Coating remains a leader in both the powder coating and media blasting fields, and they have plans for another expansion in the near future.
The mission at D & K Powder Coating is to deliver a finish of the highest quality possible, at a competitive price, on time. D & K Powder Coating is an ISO 9001:2015 certified and registered company. They base their business model and strategic plan on providing custom paint applications and media blasting services that range from one-piece runs to production-level requirements. D & K Powder Coating aspires to provide customers high quality products that meet and exceed the established standards set forth by customers, suppliers, and regulatory guidelines.
Powder coating finishes are applied electrostatically, cure under heat, and create a long-lasting finish that is substantially stronger than conventional paint. Powder coating is a solvent-free, environmentally friendly finish that virtually eliminates air and water pollution. Powder coating is available in thousands of colors and is one of the most durable and least expensive paint finishes available. Media blasting is a process used to strip paint, rust, scale, and other debris from a surface to prepare for finishing services or to provide the finished profile based on specific customer request. D & K Powder Coating has fully integrated reclaim systems to minimize environmental impact and offers aluminum oxide, stainless steel bead, steel grit, and glass bead media options.
D & K Powder Coating is filled with state-of-the-art equipment. They can accommodate any size part up to 40,000 lbs and up to 16’ wide, 12’ high, and 52’ long. D & K Powder Coating features three paint booths, two ovens, three blast booths, multiple cranes, a fleet of forklifts, and a custom-built wash bay. They are proud of their facility and their staff!
