"We are very happy with our anodize system and have no complaints
regarding the equipment or support. Everything's been going great.
We've been running our line since 2008 and it's been running at 100%."

"We do phosphoric anodizing and have been a Walgren customer since the 1970s. Doing business with Walgren's has been a good experience for us. If I was to have another line installed I would talk to Walgren first. Sometimes I wish they were more diversified so I could deal with them on our other systems."


Walgren Anodize Equipment and
Plating Equipment Support Services

Walgren provides installation worldwide. Installation is done by established, professional crews who are experienced with Walgren equipment and controls, and who adhere to strict quality and procedural guidelines.

Walgren provides a full range of service options to meet your facility's requirements, from emergency service to PM, to training. Our mission is to support your system throughout its service life, and to maximize the productive uptime of every component.

Walgren service specialists are available, 24 hours, 7 days a week. We are committed to responding to your call within two hours, and where needed, to providing an on-site service solution within 48 hours. Walgren service technicians have extensive hands-on experience with all Walgren equipment. Technicians are supported by a full-time parts manager who is dedicated to keeping supply channels open and ready to respond to any urgent situation, and to supply quality replacement and wear parts quickly.

We are the industry leader in effective PM (preventive maintenance) programs for anodize equipment, plating equipment, and specialty finishing systems. We service all of the environmental equipment we manufacture as well, including air scrubbers, plating waste treatment systems and ancillary equipment.

Walgren maintenance specialists will conduct comprehensive inspections of each pump, motor, level controller, sensing device and other components in your system, and provide a detailed summary of equipment status and recommendations, as well as documentation in the form most useful to your operations managers. Inspections are generally biannually or quarterly, but are scheduled to suit each individual customer.

Walgren provides technical training for equipment operators and maintenance personnel. Training is provided at Walgren's headquarters classroom facility, or at the customer location. We optimize the learning experience by delivering best-in-class support for every component of each Walgren system.

Walgren offers practical alternatives for project management:

  • In conjunction with its partner firms, Walgren provides a complete construction package for greenfield facilities. For these projects, Walgren and its partners assume single-source responsibility for all phases of work, from architectural and civil engineering, through ommissioning of the finishing line.
  • Alternatively, we provide "walls-in" project management focusing exclusively on the 5 stages of finishing system development: design, detail engineering, manufacture, installation and commissioning, and, where applicable, integration with plant wide automation and ERP systems.
