Parker Trutec Inc. has announced that the Urbana, Ohio facility will be constructing a 57,000 square foot building expansion. This building expansion will be required for the addition of a third Electrocoating Line to the coatings application facility located at 4795 Upper Valley Pike. This new Electrocoating process line addition compliments the other Electrocoat lines that are already in place at Parker Trutec and is expected to launch mass production by 2nd quarter 2017. The total project cost will exceed 8.0 million dollars.
The state of the art 14 station Electrocoating system is a fully automated rack line which will continue to allow an increase in production capacity for both existing and new customers and will also allow Parker Trutec Urbana to achieve tighter quality industry standards for steel, galvanneal, and aluminum substrates. This new line features 3,000 pound rated racks and processing tank parameters of 16’ x 7’8”x 6’6”. Additionally, this line has the capabilities of rack tilting at each station as needed by customer requirements. Parker
Trutec has chosen Henkel brand pretreatment chemicals and Axalta Electocoating paint for this new coating line.
The added 57,000 square feet building addition will be utilized to house the new electrocoat line. Additionally, the new building will improve production flow and efficiency for large part processing and allow better utilization of existing floor space throughout the plant. The building addition will add 4 new trucking docks to the existing 29 docks currently in use. Link Construction of Bellefontaine, Ohio has been selected for the new building installation with construction set to begin as early as late October or early November of 2015 with completion required by mid-2016.
