Col-Met Spray Booths (Garland, TX) has begun construction on a new manufacturing facility in Rockwell, TX. It's the third major expansion for the company.

Manufacturing space will increase from 45,000 to 125,000 square feet, housing two fulltime production shifts, and offices for sales, operations and customer service. The company plans to move into the new facility in the spring of 2004.

"With the increased manufacturing and warehousing space, we'll be able to offer our customers faster turnaround times, more product offerings and exceptional customer service," says Eric Jones, company vice president.

In 1996, Col-Met Spray Booths Inc. was organized as a division of Collier Metal Specialties, a manufacturer of metal products. The division was incorporated in January 1999.
