In this demanding period where much of the automotive industry is cutting costs and reducing resources, Akzo Nobel Automotive Plastics Coatings has made the decision to break ground on an 11,000 square feet of production expansion project that will incorporate state-of-the art plastic coatings equipment and process.

This expansion will include elements to improve overall operational efficiencies and throughput. An automotive coatings Automatic Dosing Unit blending site will reduce batch making times, while at the same time improving the consistency and quality of the products. A new waterborne production footprint will support the growing interior waterborne coatings segment and position the production capabilities to support future waterborne exterior topcoat activities.

Conrad Keijzer, General Manager sub-business unit Automotive Plastic Coatings, remarked that “This progressive investment demonstrates Akzo Nobel’s commitment to aggressively grow its North American automotive plastic coatings business. It further marks a logical step to accomplish our vision to provide our customers the best paint performance at the lowest cost per painted unit.” The expansion will be further supported by the addition of a centralized quality control laboratory to better integrate the production and QC processes to increase throughput.
