Technicote plant rebuilding effort ahead of schedule

September 6, 2012

The facility destroyed by a fire nine months ago will be larger with more capacity.

Technicote has been hard at work rebuilding its Cuyahoga Falls, OH plant, and has provided the industry with an update. It’s been nearly nine months since the fire that destroyed most of the company's manufacturing facility on Marc Dr. in Cuyahoga Falls.

"As you’re aware, we relocated some of the equipment that wasn’t damaged in the fire to an offsite facility in nearby Akron, OH. We continue to operate one coater in the Marc Dr. facility. The balance of the business that had been supplied from Cuyahoga Falls was transferred to other Technicote plants," the company says.

Technicote’s goal immediately following the fire was to replace the lost capacity with more capable equipment, while retaining the workforce that has been a big part of its success. After evaluating a number of different locations, the company decided to rebuild the plant on the same site, with the goal to have a larger and more capable facility than the one lost.

"We’re delighted to let you know we’re ahead of schedule on many of our activities. The building is 90% completed, and new equipment is now being delivered to the plant. The installation process will start later this month. Startup of this equipment will be in the 4th quarter. We expect to ship product to customers late in the 4th quarter," the company says.

At Technicote's Labelexpo booth (#1547), visitors can see a slideshow of “before” and “after” pictures.
