“We are very excited about our newest facility in Adairsville. This addition will provide us with a lot of new opportunities and challenges,” said Dean Porio, President, Top Gun Powder Coating & Architectural Coating. “We appreciate all the support that we have received from both the city of Adairsville and Bartow County. We are looking forward to being a successful and contributing business in the community.”

Top Gun Powder Coating & Architectural Coating was established in 2005 in Jasper and currently employs 35 full-time associates at four locations. The company provides architectural coatings such as Kynar, powder, industrial liquid and military and media blast cleaning services to support the defense, sports and recreation, commercial food and lodging, transportation, oil, gas and electric industries.

This project represents a two-pronged expansion. Top Gun will add 10 employees to its existing location in Jasper and create an additional 60 new jobs with the opening of a new facility in Adairsville to meet increased enterprise demands. The new facility is expected to be fully operational by August 2016.

“We are excited that Top Gun Powder Coating & Architectural Coating has chosen to expand their presence in Georgia,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Commissioner Chris Carr. “As a key supplier to a variety of thriving industries in Georgia, we believe they will be perfectly situated at these locations to serve their growing customer base. We want to commend our economic development partners in Northwest Georgia for their collaboration, and we look forward to supporting Top Gun Powder Coating & Architectural Coating in the future.”

“Top Gun has grown steadily in the City of Jasper and Pickens County under the leadership of owner Dean Porio,” said Gerry Nechvatal, Community Economic Development Director for the Pickens Country Chamber of Commerce. “We are also pleased that he has selected Bartow County, a member of our Joint Development Authority, as the location to establish a regional presence.”
