Located in what is known as the Golden Triangle, 30 minutes North of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, Buff Polish & Grind’s 5,000 S.F. building holds a State of the Art Research Facility dedicated to the perfection of grind to buff methods. We continually upgrade the equipment and supply items in our facility in order to stay on the leading edge.

METHODS RESEARCH by Joe Merritt

I have the unique ability to solve your finishing problems because of more than 25 years of hands-on polishing and buffing in the BPG methods research facility. Using my extensive knowledge with 99% memory recall and state of the art equipment I will develop the best method for you to produce your part in a cost effective manner. After completing the research, I will give you a detailed list of the equipment, supplies and the exact procedure you will need to finish your part. While most parts are processed at no charge, the price for the research is totally dependent on the complexity of the part.
