Greenkote PLC, a provider of advanced anti-corrosion metal coatings, says that it has more than doubled the capacity at its headquarters production facility in Brook Park, Ohio. The company says that the expansion has come in response to increasing demands from the industry.

“Greenkote usage is showing a strong rise in the markets we serve,” says Greenkote CEO Mark Gore. “Over the past year we’ve seen a steady increase in orders for anti-corrosion and metal protection coatings, and our new state-of-the-art coating line will help us keep pace with the need.”

The company says that the added equipment will multiply current capacity by nearly two and a half times, enabling the Brook Park facility to process more than 150 tons of parts per month. It will also provide for the application of specialized topcoats and sealers to the Greenkote coatings to further enhance the coating performance.

Greenkote PLC provides coating services for construction, automotive, rail, utilities and a range of other industries in which products are exposed to harsh and corrosive environments. Greenkote can be applied to a broad range of metal parts, from threaded fasteners to stamped and cast pieces, in sizes from 0.2 to 78 inches.
