PAUL J. FREDERICKS
Paul was President of Usona Anodizing Company from 1988 to 1999. He managed all areas of accounting, environmental compliance, legal matters, employee relations, facilities management and the overall performance of the company. In 1994, due to aggressive growth, he moved the company into a larger facility in close by south St. Louis. From 1994 to 1999, the company again experienced an aggressive growth pattern and it was necessary to move into a much larger facility. In 1999, he acquired Usona Anodizing Company in a stock purchase and formed Usona Metal Finishing.
In 2000, Paul acquired the real estate and assets of Kessels & Webb, a competitor in Cuba, MO. Usona Metal Finishing was formed and operated out of the new location in Cuba, MO and also maintained operations in St Louis, MO. The company continued an aggressive growth pattern. In 2004, Paul acquired the real estate and assets of Metal Coatings, a specialized powder coating company in North St Louis, MO. This facility offered fluidized bed powder coating and was acquired to service Usona’s largest anodizing customer, which had significant demand for this specialized process. Metal Coatings became a part of Usona Metal Finishing and the company as a whole continued its agressive growth pattern until 2008 when the demand for the powder coat process moved to Mexico and the powder coating division was shuttered.
In 2010, Paul formed Ace Industries. Ace offered the same services that Usona offered but had a new management staff. The company operated out of Gerald, MO. In 2013 Aerospace Metals was formed and running parallel with Ace Industries. In 2015, due to the success of Aerospace Metals, Paul decided to close Ace Industries and manage Aerospace Metals full time.
Paul earned his Bachelor degree in Economics from the University of Missouri- Columbia. He is a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
Paul is an active member of the ASPCA and Humane Society of Missouri. He is also an active fund raiser for the St Jude Walk/Run to end Childhood Cancer.
