About Us
Applied Coatings & Linings, Inc. is the leading applicator of shop applied high performance coating and lining systems in the Western United States. Our plant is located nine miles east of Los Angeles near Interstate 10. We have been in business since 1950.

In 1950, Ed Horton started the Pacific Sandblasting Company. He began with one portable air compressor, a truck and a helper. After twelve years of building up the portable sandblast business, he started a shop sandblasting operation in the city of Rosemead. His motto was, “We Will Sandblast Anything”. From houses to horse trailers, they did it all. By the end of the decade, the operation out grew the old shop. In 1970, Ed found a larger site for the shop a few miles away in El Monte. This has been our home ever since.

In 1972, Jim Horton began working for the company running the industrial coating and lining operations. Our early projects included coating and lining fabricated pipe assemblies for Diablo Canyon and San Onofre Nuclear Powers Plants. Other large projects included filtration systems for Aramco and Arco Alaska. We also processed tooling for Northops B2 Stealth Bomber project. By the 1990′s, the company focused its attention and resources to shop applied protective coatings. To reflect this change we began operating as Applied Coatings & Linings Inc.

Applied Coatings & Linings Inc. is certified ISO 9001-2008 compliant by SAI-Global to the current 2008 standard. We are currently migrating to the new 2015 standard. Applied Coatings & Linings Inc. is Certified by The Society of Protective Coatings (SSPC) to SSPC-QP 3 Standard for shop coating. We are one of only a few firms worldwide which has been awarded both certifications.
