IFS Coatings Breaks Ground on Expansion in Texas
IFS Coatings has broken ground on a 40,000-square-foot facility, the first part of a planned 70,000-square-foot expansion in Gainesville, Texas.
IFS Coatings (Gainesville, Texas) has broken ground on a new facility located next to its current headquarters and an IFS manufacturing plant in Gainesville, Texas. Phase one of the expansion project is a 40,000-square-foot facility, with the total expansion plan totalling 70,000 square feet.
“As well as growing our core business, over recent years we have invested heavily in growth areas such as thermoplastic powders, functional products and environmentally responsible powder for alternate substrates,” says Glynn Mason, president of IFS Coatings. “This new building signifies our confidence in these advances, delivers much-needed room for growth and will enhance our overall capabilities.”
The new building will accommodate increased capacity and new technology, and will include space for manufacturing, warehousing and development projects.
“All of our manufacturing facilities are here in the USA and we are proud of our workforce who are all employed in North America,” Mason continues. “We see this expansion as a celebration of our commitment to growth in our local communities and we are excited about the opportunities it offers, as it enables us to respond to increasing demand for our sustainable powder coatings.”
IFS plans to open the new building later this year.
