Stronghold Coating Systems, provider of custom polymeric products and process development for thermal spray coating applications, opens its 5,000-square-foot facility in Franklin, Ohio. To celebrate the facility’s open, Congressman Warren Davidson joined the event with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The new facility is designed to produce MM1018 in-house, a load bearing repair product the company says is not commonly manufactured in the U.S. In addition to housing production for MM1018, the facility will house the engineering, research and development, shipping and receiving departments and corporate offices. It also hosts the company’s six-axis robotic application systems while adjacent structures will streamline and simplify operations.

According to the company, manufacture of the MM1018 product includes acquisition of specialized mixing and blending machinery as well as the addition of more personnel. The company’s previous facility will continue to produce Stronghold products including Dichtol micro-porosity sealers with capillary action, PlasticMetal repair products, RepaCoat repair products and house its test lab. 

“This new space allows us to better serve customers in an ever-expanding array of industries,” says Stronghold Coating Systems president, Larry Grimenstein. “With the added room, our production team can manufacture and ship product without impeding on the space that our technical team requires as they work to solve complex wear or corrosion problems.”
