International seal of quality for Kestrel powder coating

  • 11 Jan 2024

Birmingham based Kestrel Powder Coating has become one of the elite companies awarded a QUALICOAT coating applicator approved licence, assuring the quality of its powder coating service for extruded aluminium profiles.

QUALICOAT is an independent, globally recognised product certification scheme. To gain recognition, applicators must use QUALICOAT licenced products and employ a precisely specified process for the powder coating service. 

Kestrel Powder Coating, sister company to Kestrel Aluminium, has been providing powder coating to the relevant quality standard (BS EN 12206) for many years. The QUALICOAT certification adds an additional layer of rigorous assessment, with inspectors examining each step of the Kestrel process to ensure that every stage of production and customer service is carried out to consistently high standards. 


The certification is a welcome recognition of the degree of training and focus on quality improvement that Kestrel has developed in recent months, with a dedicated team determined to see the company joining the limited number of organisations in the UK market to hold this prestigious quality mark.

Nicki Baylis, General Manager at Kestrel, is delighted with the recognition. She says: “The QUALICOAT licence demonstrates both the quality of our service and our ambition to be seen as a quality leader in the provision of powder coating services within the UK.”

Kestrel Powder Coating supplies high-quality finishes in a wide range of RAL and BS colours. It has built its reputation on high quality and on first-class customer service, a combination that has led to an impressive degree of customer loyalty. The company anticipates that the QUALICOAT licence will attract new customers, who demand this rigorous quality certification.
