Our Heritage


We’re proud of the reputation we have built over the past 120-years

Developed on the back of continued innovation, development and customer support, Poeton Industries is now the UK’s leading independent surface treatment expert.

Founded in 1898 by Arthur Thomas Poeton in the Tower Hill area of Bristol, Poeton Industries’ current chairman, Anthony Poeton, is the fourth generation of the Poeton family to be involved with the business.

History of innovation

From humble beginnings of enamel plating bicycle components, to processing key components during the war-time, overseas ventures, and the development of advanced problem-solving composite coatings, we have always been at the forefront of surface engineering innovation.

Leading research and development facilities, expert engineers, and the latest coating technology ensures we will continue to provide the most innovative solutions and make your next project possible.

Now located at three sites; our Gloucester headquarters, our one-stop shop for aerospace in Cardiff and our latest venture in Rzeszow, Poeton Polska, we have the resources and capabilities for even the most complex surface material issues.
