Our Staff

“The employees are my most important asset. Their loyalty and dedication built this company”

staff1Tim Chow

President and General Manager

Tim is very easy going and is a true entrepreneur in that he loves the excitement of building his own company and working hard to ensure it runs efficiently. As a graduate from UBC from Chemical Engineering – Tim never imagined his life to include aluminum anodizing, but has built two successive anodizing companies. Tim sold the first company after ten years and began Spectral Finishing eighteen years ago. Tim’s first job after university was in an anodizing company and when he saw the lack of variety in the marketplace, he cornered an anodizing niche for himself. Born in Hong Kong, Tim immigrated to Canada in 1970 and has lived in Toronto and Vancouver. Tim is a family oriented person, so much so that he runs his company as a Spectral family of sorts. Tim is married and has two sons and one daughter. Tim is a self-professed workaholic, but when he does take a break, he likes to travel with his family and weight train to keep fit.
