Family Owned and Operated Since 1968

Family owned and operated, Powder Coating & Sandblasting services in Oakland, Ca

50 years and counting

Melrose Metal Finishing, Inc. was started in 1968 by Wayne and Phyllis Nagengast. Melrose got it’s name from the district in which it was founded. We moved to the South Stonehurst district in 1972 and have operated here ever since. We are a full service powder coating shop. Most of our employees have been with the company for 15+ years. Present owner and son, Curtis Nagengast, has provided the same high quality service as did his dad since becoming full time owner in 1999. We thank you for your patronage and look forward to being here for another 50 years!
