Central Iowa Powder Coating

John Platte has been through a lot in 21 years as owner of Central Iowa Powder Coating. He continues to fill orders worldwide from his Hubbard shop after a fire at the original one in Radcliffe took everything but a forklift.

John Platte could have made a nice little living being a teacher. Instead, he embarked on a trip into the familiar but unknown world of manufacturing.

He could have been a farmer, making a living in the dairy industry that he grew up in. Instead, he gambled.
