Technicote is to rebuild its Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio plant after a fire destroyed the bulk of the operation on December 16 last year.
‘After evaluating numerous options in various states and sites, we concluded rebuilding at our current location in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio was the best option,’ said Doug O'Connell, president of Technicote. ‘We were anxious to retain our experienced workforce, since they’re one of the keys to producing the unique products we offer. Rebuilding on the same site makes it easiest on our employees. Another factor was that the city of Cuyahoga Falls has been great to work with throughout this process. Finally, we were able to find a builder who can get our facility completed in a reasonably short timeframe.’
Technicote is now going through the approval process with city and county officials. The new manufacturing facility will include new adhesive and silicone coaters, new wide web slitters and an improved process flow design throughout the plant.
The company expects the new facility to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2012 and to resume the manufacture of many specialty coated pressure sensitive products that other Technicote facilities have been producing for customers.
‘Our sincere appreciation goes out to our many customers that have been patient with Technicote during this difficult recovery period,’ said the company in statement.
