Douglas Parker is the owner and president of Circle-Prosco (Bloomington, Ind.), a family-owned pretreatment and coating operation celebrating its 50th year anniversary.
Formed by Parker’s father-in-law, Conrad Kuzma, Circle-Prosco started out in the automotive heat exchange industry during a time when the industry was shifting to use a lot of aluminum — which prompted the company’s subsequent growth into stationary HVAC areas.
Over the course of its 50 years, Circle-Prosco has become involved in finishing very specific components and also develops and applies coatings for industrial manufacturers. Parker recently took some time to talk with Products Finishing about the company’s approach and its latest endeavors.
