Claudio Polla began his career in the manufacturing industry 25 years prior to founding Briken Coatings. He quickly became knowledgeable in many areas of manufacturing – from spot welding to powder coating. His expertise in powder coating and management was apparent, so he opened Briken in December of 1993.
Research and development into M.D.F. powder coatings began in 1995 at Briken and in the last 20 years, we have become a strong industry leader. Our roster of well-known clients includes Shoppers Drug Mart, Alpine, Cadbury and Nissan, among many more. Our work can be found in the stores and buildings of our customers, which clearly indicates the high quality of our fixtures.
Briken’s first location, a 10,000 square foot facility on Bonhill Road in Mississauga, Ontario, was busy and efficient, but 15 years later there was a clear need to upgrade. In 2007, the decision was made to move to an updated space on Kestrel Road in Mississauga. At nearly triple the square footage and with even more equipment, production times have been cut in half – perfect for companies with Just-In-Time processes and tight deadlines.
Briken was founded on a strong value system with customer-driven procedures. We are still a family-owned and operated company and have retained many of the employees who opened our doors with us in 1993. We are proud to have maintained our high quality output for more than 20 years and plan to continuously advance our processes for customers.
