Our Fonda, NY operations upgraded our existing high performance 25’ vertical paint line.  The $2.1M upgrade consisted of expanding its footprint by 3,000/sq. ft. to accommodate a new state-of-the-art stainless steel washer and latest technologically advanced pre-treatment system.  The new system improves overall efficiencies and ensures our customers’ continue to receive the highest possible quality paint coatings in the industry.

The NY operations also underwent an extensive upgrade to the 9” extrusion press.  It included a new Kevlar belt handling system, upgraded head & tail stretchers, press saw, double puller with movable saw, log oven, upgraded hydraulics on the container, new PLC controls, and added an air & water quench system.  The upgrade resulted in reduced cycle time, reduction in press scrap, as well as improved overall efficiency and quality.
