Ano-Tech Metal Finishing was established in Clovis, CA in 1981, by Dean & Carol Downs. Dean and Carol moved from Orange County with their two daughters, Kelly & Kendra. Dean spent most of the first few years with the company on the road delivering parts and visiting with customers, while Carol ran the office and cared for their daughters. Dean and Carol built Ano-Tech as a family business with a commitment to quality product and customer service. Dean's handshake was the equivalent of a signed contract. Due to Dean and Carol's hard work and commitment to quality, the business grew and he looked from within for help in keeping his promise to his customers. Kelly Downs-Tuman (Dean's Daughter) and Brett Hunter (Kendra's Husband), full of excitement and vision for the business, joined Dean and Ano Tech. Ano-Tech continues to be a family owned and operated business with its number one priority being amazing quality and customer service. The business will continue to pursue Dean and Carol's vision.
