Metals Protection Plating, known today as the MPP Group of Companies, was founded in 1937, and has grown from its original location at 2800 Truman Road in Kansas City, Missouri, to a family owned business operating in four states, with real estate assets in five.

The company was purchased by the Bozarth family in 1956, and today is led by Ed Bozarth (CEO – MPP Group of Companies). For over 75 years now, MPP has been a well-respected name in metal finishing, employing very capable sales, operations, technical, and customer service teams.

Ed Bozarth is personally involved in every aspect of the business, assuring his customers of the best in finishing services and in customer service. On a daily basis, Ed reviews the pending production orders and processes with each of his plant managers, and makes sure that MPP not only fulfills its business obligations, but also meets its customers' expectations.
