Our outstanding workmanship and attention to detail has made Steve Reiff, Inc. a premier provider of liquid coating and sandblasting services to the concrete industry. Over a span of two decades, we have painted an impressive 10,000+ new and used concrete trucks for both OEMs and fleet owners.

An OEM in Avilla, Indiana counts on us to give their front discharge mixers a high gloss finish that sets the industry standard for durability while showcasing their visually appealing signature styling. We developed a 7-phase process control plan that contains 100+ separate action and inspection tasks – from exhaustive vehicle preparation through to sandblasting, steam cleaning, priming, painting, and final inspection – to ensure that each truck meets the OEM’s demanding quality standards.

Use of high performance coating materials, such as DuPont™ Imron® Elite polyurethanes, allows us to create high gloss finishes with premium appearance and excellent long-term performance while also enabling us to meet the manufacturer’s color and design requirements. Through the agile teamwork of our highly skilled blasters, painters, and quality inspectors, we currently process 3-4 trucks per week, each on a 5-7 day turnaround.
