Adept Plastic Finishing – History

Founded in 1984 in Farmington Hills, Michigan, Adept first painted headlamp bezels for the Pontiac Grand Am, and side door handles for the Ford Aerostar. In 1988, the company moved to Wixom, Michigan and currently is the location of all four facilities.

Plant 1, built in 1988, is a 20,000 square foot facility located on Andersen Court and specializes in painting both interior and exterior products. Current processes include the application of water and solvent borne lacquers, soft-touch finish, and masking operations. Products include grilles, instrument panel trim, shifter bezels, garnish moldings, door handles, and many other parts with automotive applications.

Plant 3, also a paint facility, was built in 2004 and is located on Beck Road. At approximately 70,000 square feet, this location specializes in applying basecoat-clearcoat paint systems for both interior and exterior applications. Included in the many painted products are door handles, exterior body side trim components and interior instrument panel bezels. Plant 3 is also the location of our corporate offices.

In 2008, Plant 4, our chrome plate over plastic facility was opened. With capability of plating over ABS and PC/ABS substrates, Plant 4 offers chrome plate decoration for both interior and exterior components. We process a variety of products, ranging from heavy duty truck grilles to small interior ornamentation.

Our injection molding facility, Plant 2, opened in the summer of 2013. The 80,000 square foot plant supplies raw molded product to our paint and chrome plate finishing plants. The facility features fourteen electrical injection mold presses ranging from 140 to 500 ton. Plant 2 is also the location of our corporate offices.
