GAINESVILLE, TX — IFS announced that the company has broken ground on a new facility. Located next to the current headquarters and an IFS manufacturing plant in Gainesville, Texas, phase one of the project commenced with ground breaking on an initial 40,000-square-foot facility, which is part of a 70,000-square-foot total expansion plan.

Glynn Mason, President of IFS Coatings, said, "As well as growing our core business, over recent years we have invested heavily in growth areas such as thermoplastic powders, functional products and environmentally responsible powder for alternate substrates. This new building signifies our confidence in these advances, delivers much needed room for growth and will enhance our overall capabilities."

Scheduled to open later this year, the new building will accommodate increased capacity and new technology, and will include space for manufacturing, warehousing and development projects. Mason continued, "All of our manufacturing facilities are here in the USA and we are proud of our workforce who are all employed in North America. We see this expansion as a celebration of our commitment to growth in our local communities and we are excited about the opportunities it offers, enabling us to respond to increasing demand for our sustainable powder coatings."
