Vogel Industrial Coatings says that Phase Three of a five-year, $29.3 million expansion plan for the powder coating operation located at its headquarters in Orange City, Iowa, will begin ahead of schedule.
The third phase of the four-phase project includes purchasing and installing additional powder production equipment for new processing lines in the recently completed expansion of the facility, and upgrades to the original processing lines. With these additions, two-thirds of all the planned equipment in the new facility will have been installed, the company says. The new equipment is expected to be up and running in early 2019.
“It’s very encouraging to see this project ahead of schedule,” says Jeff Powell, Vogel Paint president. “The addition of this equipment will help us service the increasing demands of our customers for high-quality powder coatings.”
The initial two phases of the project included a 91,000-square-foot addition to the current building and the first portion of equipment for new production lines.
