About Us

Who we are and what we do

Over the past 45 years Nike-Tech has had exposure to a vast number of industries, from aerospace to digital coatings, such as liquid laminates. This broad exposure to many industries provides Nike-Tech expertise in formulating complex products at the highest levels of performance. We take pride in solving the most difficult global paint & coatings challenges.

As an example of the long history of Nike-Tech's founder, Jim Hughes, over the past 35 years, much of the current U.S. domestic mirror backing technology was based on his efforts at C.H. Draggert and Omega Coatings Company, which was later sold to Lilly Industrial Coatings, and, in time, re-invented at Sureguard Inc. Later these businesses were once again acquired and in turn split up and sold to two leading U.S. coatings/paint manufacturers which remain active today in the mirror industry.

Although many people have come and gone over the years, the initial foundation of innovative technology and quality is the basis of success at Nike-Tech, Inc.
