3 Sigma expands again

January 3, 2011

The planned addition of a new production coating line is the company’s 14th.

Following a major expansion of the company four years ago which doubled the size and capacity of its operation in Troy, OH, USA, 3 Sigma is growing again. Funding and preparations are now in place to add a 14th production coating line, which will be the company’s largest and most capable piece of equipment. Work on the project is scheduled to start early in 2011 and be completed in the third quarter.

The machine will accommodate 78” web materials and apply multiple coatings and/or adhesives on both the front and back of the web. A laminating station will allow pressure sensitive constructions with liner or multilayered product designs.

“After weathering the recent industry downturn, 3 Sigma is poised for additional growth and anticipates significant business increases in 2011 and 2012, due to several major new strategic projects,” says Tony Rowley, VP of operations. “Not only is the increased capacity needed to handle our expected business growth, this additional coater will significantly expand our process capabilities and enable us to provide more highly engineered constructions for new markets.”

Since 1980, 3 Sigma has supplied specialty top-coating and pressure sensitive adhesive coated products.
