New Paint Line Adds Capabilities for Savannah Industrial Solutions
New, semi-automated, five-stage, powder-coat paint line will allow the company to create metal counters, cabinets and other displays in virtually any color.
Iroquois Industrial Group and Big Shoulders Capital are making a major investment in Savannah Industrial Solutions (Savannah, Tenn.) to add new capabilities for the manufacturer of custom metal, stone, wood and refrigeration products for the restaurant, food service, healthcare, telecommunications, municipal and other markets as well as creating new jobs.
A new, semi-automated, five-stage, powder-coat paint line will allow the company to create metal counters, cabinets and other displays in virtually any color. It is also designed to allow the company to paint metal parts for other businesses seeking a quality powder coating process for metal parts up to six feet in length. The new paint line uses state-of-the-art equipment in a 90-minute cycle time from start to finish. 350 trolleys move parts at eight feet per minute on the conveyor system producing a finished part at the end of the line.
Iroquois Industrial Group and Big Shoulders Capital created Savannah Industrial Solutions (SIS) after purchasing Savannah All American Millwork and Fabrication in 2019. Since then, the company has added new equipment and processes with the largest investment being the new paint line scheduled to be fully operational by the end of August.
"We believe in this company and this community and are committed to growing a world-class custom manufacturing business in Savannah," said Shane Dittrich, president of Iroquois Industrial Group. "We have some of the most talented and hard-working team members anywhere. Their unique skills allow us to offer wood, metal, stone and refrigeration products created to meet the most demanding specifications. The new paint line will keep more of the manufacturing process in-house, improving delivery times and the ability to further customize products to our customer's specifications."
According to the company, the powder coating line is ideal for automotive, outdoor, lawn and garden, industrial and other industries where a strong, permanent color coating is required.
What is right for the customer?
Infrared cure is gaining increased attention from coaters as a result of shorter cure cycles and the possibility of smaller floor space requirements when compared to convection oven curing.
