Our company was founded in 1959 by David E. Huber, a Notre Dame School of Metallurgical Science graduate. While working at a National Space science lab, he formed the notion of a company to have as its business mission to innovate and to decipher everyday engineering problems related to wear and corrosion of metallic substrates. Upon launching Imagineering, he developed boutique coatings for aerospace and automotive application during his career and consulted many of the Fortune 1000 industrial firms. He sold his business to the current President/CEO, Jim Hammer, in 1996.
Since 1996 Imagineering has expanded its asset base by 450%; staff of employees by 330%; with revenue improvement of approximately 500%. The Imagineering brand is globally acknowledged as the KnowledgeSource™ for Metal Finishing.
Imagineering Enterprises is a provider of metallurgical consulting and process applications in a wide range of markets where finish is merely a beginning. Our processing facilities are certified to world class quality and environmental standards, and we were one of the first metal finishing companies in the world to achieve TS-16949, ISO 9001, AS 9100 and Nadcap quality program accreditations, in addition to attaining the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification. Through our commitment to the principles of Total Quality Management, we develop and maintain a synergistic relationship with each one of our customers. By employing these high level quality systems we make it easier for our customers to manage the supply chain. Electroless nickel plating, phosphates, chromate conversion, dry-film lubricants and specialty paints – we provide metal finishing solutions beyond the surface.
The solution begins with evaluation. We determine your specific needs by a thorough evaluation and testing of the substrate, its characteristics, function and condition. Our process engineers are matched to the task, regardless of which cleaning, plating, coating or testing process is specified. We have catalogued more than 2,000 specifications, so chances are, we have yours.
