BROOK PARK, OH – Greenkote, global provider of advanced anticorrosion metal coatings, recently announced a major expansion of production capacity at its headquarters facility in Brook Park, Ohio. The expansion comes in response to an upsurge in demand for corrosion protection on environmentally exposed metal fasteners and hardware in a number of different industries.
“I don’t know if climate change may be a part of it, but we’re seeing notable increases in anticorrosion coating orders for all kinds of different metal parts that are exposed to the elements,” said Greenkote CEO Mark Gore. “The orders are coming from a range of sectors, including automotive, rail, electric power distribution, wind power generation, and others. These are all applications that have fasteners, fixtures and other metal hardware exposed to long-term outdoor atmospheric corrosion.”
Gore stated that installation of the additional Greenkote coating equipment in Brook Park has been completed and the facility is now fully operational with significantly expanded capacity. Greenkote provides anticorrosion coating services for construction, automotive, rail, utilities and many other industries in which parts are exposed to weather or harsh and corrosive environments. Greenkote can be applied to a broad range of metal parts, from threaded fasteners to stamped and cast pieces, in sizes from 0.2 to 78 inches. The company reports that proprietary Greenkote coatings have been replacing several older anticorrosion processes such as galvanizing, hot-dip, sherardizing and metal flake.
