Benda-Lutz Corporation (BLC) has opened the recent expansion to its plant in Independence, Ky. This second expansion in five years will increase capacity for its Blitz brand bonding service for the powder coating industry, allowing for reduced production lead times. It will also significantly increase available warehouse space. Benda-Lutz will use the additional warehousing to hold inventory of its metallic pigments for direct sales into the powder coatings, paints, plastics and aerated concrete markets in the United States and Central America.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2006, BLC is a part of the Benda-Lutz group, a multi-national metallic pigment manufacturer and provider of the Blitz bonding service, a company that originated and is still headquartered in Austria.
