Event Details



DIFCO started in 1960 in downtown Atlanta in some old government warehouse buildings. In the mid-late 70s, we moved to Tucker where we are currently located. Our 2 buildings were designed and built specifically for metal finishing, and we design, build and program all of our own processing equipment. DIFCO is currently owned by the same family that started the company 64 years ago. 

We are a job shop/contract metal finishing/electroplating company that provides a variety of finishes to multiple industries. Our finishes include zinc and electroless nickel plating, manganese and zinc phosphate coatings, Geomet brand zinc-flake coatings, passivation of stainless steel and chromate conversion coatings on aluminum. Our industry base includes, but is not limited to, automotive, heavy equipment, lawn and garden, electrical and electronics, firearms manufacturers, conveyor and material handling equipment, construction products, fasteners, etc. We are a locally owned family business.

Top three reasons to attend:

  • Great networking among industry peers
  • Great way to escape the office or normal work place for some great socializing
  • See a unique industry that is often very unfamiliar to most who visit
