Our History

Established in 1965 as a UK leading family business, of industrial finishing specialists, at ActOn Finishing Ltd we’ve worked hard to design, develop and manufacture mass finishing technology of high standard. We cater to a wide range of industries such as additive manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, coin blanking, forgings and castings, fashion, general engineering, hospitality and medical. At ActOn Finishing Ltd our team of experts have developed tailored surface finishing solutions for customers around the world.


ActOn Finishing first opened its doors.


The business became very successful after winning important London-based client, Hoover. They used ActOn’s chemical compounds to polish aluminium parts on vacuum cleaners


It was around this time that we saw the opportunity to create our very own finishing machinery. The first prototypes were the trough range, which were then introduced to the Jaguar Engine Plant based in Radford, Coventry. This milestone led to the development of automatic bowl machines.


From 1980, we began exporting products overseas. One Swedish aluminium casting company bought 10 machines and compound consumables in one order! On top of this, 1980 saw us employ our first sales rep, which led to the growth of an impressive sales team.


A year of big change and excitement, as we opened our doors to new Managing Director, Sandeep Gulati.
