Van R. Pilkington
Pilkington Metal Finishing
In 1981, Van Pilkington started a company that would become Pilkington Metal Finishing - an ISO 9001:2008 registered, Nadcap certified finisher with 115 employees. Long before constructing the 73,000 square foot facility the company operates from today, Van laid the foundation of trusted industry relationships through honesty, hard work, and dedication to his customers - always fulfilling his commitments.
Pilkington’s fair, straight-forward philosophy of service has been instrumental in keeping the trust of many highly valued customers. His customers always appreciate Van’s attention to detail and commitment to the metal finishing industry. These same traits have made Van a respected employer - a designation he’s had throughout his career. Pilkington has been successful in finding, developing, and retaining many talented employees throughout his career.
Growing up in Utah, Van took part in various extra-curricular activities at Bountiful High School, including his participation in the Mormon Youth Symphony as one of its youngest members. After completing a successful two-year LDS mission to the Netherlands, Van graduated from the University of Utah in the college of Humanities.
Van is a member of the world-renown Mormon Tabernacle Choir as well as working within the Boy Scout organization (raising 5 scouts of his own). Van has a love for Utah and is proud of his personal and professional relationships.
