Finishing Talk Announces Collaboration with PF Online

Previous Page

Products Finishing magazine will soon be unveiling the product of its recent collaboration with the popular metal finishing community and forum, Finishing Talk. Over the past two years, Finishing Talk has exploded onto the industry scene as a cutting edge online community, forum, newsletter, and marketing company for metal finishing professionals. With a rapidly growing membership and an active community forum, Finishing Talk was an appealing choice for a cooperative web endeavor with Products Finishing.

"The people that use PFOnline will now have another resource that harnesses the power of the Internet," says Products Finishing Publisher Don Kline. "They can now get their questions answered by an active community that includes top finishing professionals from all over the world. PF is excited to be working with Finishing Talk."

Products Finishing magazine is an industry renowned publication with more than 40,000 subscribers - the largest circulation in the finishing industry. The magazine's Web site,, is an established and respected resource for metal finishers. It contains a large database of industry suppliers and products, extensive archives of past issues, an interactive clinic touting prominent consultants and educators, and more. The addition of the Finishing Talk Forums to the site will be an added benefit, possibly drawing a new generation of finishers into the Web site.

The collaboration will be a big boost for the up and coming Finishing Talk community, as well. Though Finishing Talk will remain an independent Web site after the integration, the forums will also be accessible through Products Finishing's site ( This will serve to increase traffic on the forums and bring added exposure to other products and services that Finishing Talk currently offers.
"We are pleased to have this opportunity to expand our membership and provide a place for finishers to discuss issues of importance to them, within a like-minded community. With a new gateway to the forums, via PF online, more of these individuals will benefit from this great service - and it's free!" commented Paul Fisher, Administrator of, and publisher of the Finishing Talk newsletter.

The site update is scheduled to take place in the middle of June, 2008. Both Products Finishing and Finishing Talk are very excited about the integration of the forums into PF's website, and look forward to a continued and prosperous relationship.
