Metrix Corp. LLC., Watertown, SD, is expanding its Paint Division, a Class "A" production paint facility, to include additional powder and liquid applications. The company is a vertically integrated contract manufacturer specializing in low and mid-volume production of large and complex fabrications. The expansion will add an additional large-component powder coating line capable of coating truck body assemblies and a powder coating line specifically designed for hydraulic cylinders and valve bodies. The expansion reportedly will allow the company to double its capacity to better meet the requirements of existing secured paint contracts and other regional clients. The company reports that the expansion will enable it to continue to offer prototype and emergency production paint support without disruption to its existing production commitments. Construction will begin by November 1, 2006 and is expected to be completed by February 1, 2007.
