Impreglon Undergoing Expansion
Southwest Impreglon is currently undergoing a construction project to expand its custom coating facility. According to George Butler, President and Co-Principal of Impreglon, the expansion is necessary in order to better serve its current and future customer base. The original coating facility was always built with expansion in mind. However, now with the addition of even more coating processes and services to its already more than 200 offerings, the company simply ran out of room.
The anticipated completion date for new construction is October 2002 and to become fully operational sometime in April 2003. The new construction will increase the production processing area by an additional 12,000 sq. feet and will increase the large part handling and weight capacity to 10-tons. Also included in the new construction will be the addition of a larger curing furnace to facilitate the processing of the larger and heavier parts. The inside dimensions of the furnace will be 12? x 12? x 40? long and will have an 850 degree F heating capability. Also added will be larger spray booths and blast rooms appropriately sized for the processing of the larger parts.
