Reliant Has A Simple 5-step Approach To Building And Selling Finishing Equipment:

  1. Never compromise when it comes to integrity.
  2. Manufacture equipment that is durable, easy to maintain and works well.
  3. Price every product and service fairly–and don’t sell customers more than they need.
  4. Give customers advice and support whenever it is required.
  5. Never stop trying to improve our products, services and business practices.

Reliant maintains friendly, cooperative relationships with equipment resellers, installation contractors and powder coating suppliers (including those who don’t sell our products). We don’t bad-mouth our competition and we never mislead our distributors or customers. Whether you’re a new business owner starting your first shop, or a major distributor or OEM buying a dozen units at a time, we promise to do everything we can to assist you.

A History Of Success

Reliant Specialty Equipment Corporation is a privately held U.S. company that manufactures all of its products in the United States. Reliant’s Finishing Systems division focuses on high-performance powder coating equipment.

Reliant Finishing Systems was initially headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, with manufacturing facilities in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Reliant’s rapid growth resulted in relocation of the company headquarters in 2006 and expansion to an additional 33,000 square foot facility in early 2008. Through a cooperative manufacturing arrangement, Reliant added an additional 40,000 square foot facility in 2011. Reliant’s primary sales, manufacturing and warehousing operations are all based in Alabama.

The foundation for Reliant Finishing Systems’ success was formed in the 1990s. After working with major finishing equipment manufacturers from Italy, the founders of Reliant began developing new products that combined superior performance and increased fuel economy. In 2001, they introduced modular designs that made their products more affordable. By working with Power Flame, a leading manufacturer of forced-induction burners, they integrated new heating technology that gave their products even greater performance. In 2004, they turned their attention to curing ovens like those used in the powder coating industry. By mid-2005 they had prototype powder ovens installed across the U.S. These ovens outperformed many other brands by as much as 400%, which generated a huge demand from both equipment distributors and end-users. Reliant Specialty Equipment Corporation was formed as a new company in response to this demand and Reliant’s Finishing Systems division continues a tradition of equipment innovation and value.

Delivering The Best Powder Coating Equipment

Reliant equipment is proudly designed and built in the United States and is available through regional, national and international distributors, including web sales outlets, under a variety of brand names. Reliant works directly with OEM/PBL clients to provide “private label” powder coating equipment manufactured to their specifications, so most of the equipment we build has another company’s name on it.

Thousands of Reliant powder coating ovens and spray booths have been sold by industry-leading equipment suppliers across the United States and abroad. Reliant provides prep, powder coating systems and curing systems for custom cycle builders, racing equipment fabricators, truck repair centers and automotive body shops. Reliant also manufactures industrial powder coating systems for industrial curing, painting and coating applications, military/aviation/aerospace finishing, and scientific use.

Reliant won’t compromise on design integrity or component quality just to make a cheaper product or offer equipment that mimics other brands. Reliant uses only state-of-the-art CNC fabrication equipment to assure that every powder coating system is perfectly built. There’s no guesswork about where our equipment is made–all Reliant products are built in the U.S.A. using only prime domestic steel and premium quality components. Because Reliant has fully redundant production lines, the lead times we quote are always accurate.
