The Crown Group has a long history of providing solutions to our customers.

The Crown Group has grown and evolved from a company that was founded by Philip Baer (Baer Industries) in 1950. In 1965, the original “Crown Enameling, Inc.” was founded. That was the beginning of The Crown Group as it is known today.


From its beginning in 1965, The Crown Group had grown to several companies by 1980 and began to establish itself as the leading coatings application supplier for the automotive marketplace.


During the 80’s and 90’s, as the automotive industry supply base expanded into other parts of North America, The Crown Group followed. Additional plants were established to service the ecoating, powder coating, and liquid painting needs of OEMs and the Tier One supply base.


Today, The Crown Group continues to provide excellence in quality, service and delivery for the North American automotive and industrial markets. Let us put our over 50 years of experience and coating excellence to work for you.
