International Paint expands Berea production facility

By Tim Wright

Published July 2, 2009
International Paint Protective Coatings has expanded its Berea, OH manufacturing facility, bringing production of the company’s Ceilcote and Enviroline brands together under one roof. Ceilcote’s high-performance corrosion-resistant linings and coatings have been manufactured in Berea since the early 1950s, with a newer production facility built at the site in 2005. Expanding that facility to include production of Enviroline’s ultra-low VOC corrosion protection coatings, allows International Paint to leverage brand synergies and better control the escalating costs of overhead, raw materials and other supply costs. These factors, and the facility’s efficient made-to-order capabilities, are expected to double product production and help minimize price increases to customers.

New equipment was purchased to accommodate the increased production including a mixer, boiler, hot box and hot water jackets to maintain resin viscosity during colder months. The warehouse was also re-designed, and additional racks brought in, to improve efficiency and create 30 percent more space for inventoried product.International Paint Protective Coatings, an AkzoNobel company, acquired Ceilcote in 2007 and Enviroline in 2008 to both complement and extend its global portfolio of linings and protective coatings products.
