The article features Godwin Manufacturing's automated dump body powder coating as it cashes in on its anti-rust operation. It notes that the automated paint line enables the company to offer a rust-resistant zinc primer as standard on its steel dump bodies which are used in snow and ice applications. It talks about the lab testing of the coating materials, the equipment necessary for the production line, and the operations involved, growing from an 18,000 gallon propane tank capacity to 252,000.
