Introduction of Albert Johnson


After serving in Vietnam, Albert retued to the U.S., and like many retuing young combat veterans, he was not sure what he wanted to do. He started working in the oil patch as a roughneck. During his 18 year stint in the patch, Albert noticed all of the surface treatment work that was done on the various drilling components. In 1987 he went to work in the surface treatment industry working in shot peening. After three years, Albert felt that he had a better idea, and he started Superior Shot Peening in 1990 to shot peen oil field tools. Responding to customer requirements and requests, Albert has built Superior Shot Peening, Inc. into the only complete “one-stop-shop” in the metal treatment industry that performs shot peening, metallizing, HVOF, phosphating, heat treating, and multiple liquid and powder coatings; all in one location. Superior Shot Peening has become an industry leader in providing metal treatments for enhanced life in terms of abatement of fatigue, corrosion, and stress corrosion. In 2007 Superior Shot Peening, Inc expanded into an Inteational company with operations in Singapore, Changzhou China, and Mumbai India."
