DUNMORE Corporation has announced plans to expand its plant in Bristol, PA. Past improvements at the Bristol location include the purchase and installation of a new coating line, metallizer, slitter rewinder, along with a major office renovation that was completed in early 2002.
The next phase of expansion includes the addition of slot die coating capability, a new 5,200 square foot research and development department, and the integration of the Newtown, PA, facility into the Bristol site. Newtown has been expanded numerous times over the past 30 years to the point of reaching maximum capacity. The expansion is scheduled to begin in January 2003 and take 12 to 18 months to complete.
At the completion of this phase, the Bristol plant will house three solvent and aqueous coating lines, two with in-line laminating capability and two with UV coating capability, two vacuum metallizers, three slitter rewinders, one dry laminator and a pilot coating/ laminating line.
