Kaser Blasting and Coatings sets social media tone in competitive industry

Jase Kaser, a 2015 graduate in mechanical engineering, is general manager of Kaser Blasting and Coatings and was recently featured in the podcast, “Frustrations to Finishing with Jase Kaser” on the Maui Powder Works website. Kaser talked about his career, how he was inspired by powder coating as well as managing customer expectations. It isn’t the first time Kaser has lent his expertise to industry media. In January 2021, Kaser Blasting and Coatings was highlighted in Products Finishing Online Magazine, and twice featured in Finishing & Coating Magazine (October 2020 and October 2021).

Kaser, who spends his days managing production at Kaser Blasting and Coatings, credits UNL with giving him the problem-solving skills required to keep his business running at maximum capacity. In fact, when he’s not maintaining equipment and adjusting the jam-packed powder schedule, he uses social media to promote the industry in hopes of helping new powder coaters get their start. Kaser blogs, vlogs and has his own podcast and is active on Tik Tok, LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook.

Located in Lincoln, Kaser Blasting and Coatings specializes in media blasting, powder coating and painting, and services customers in four states and the surrounding Midwest. The company also helped in the renovation of Brace Hall, refurbishing a cast iron screen that was returned to its original location over the east door of the building, which opened in 1905.
