Keco Coatings has acquired a second facility for the company’s high‐performance coating operation in Indianapolis, IN. Keco plans to invest $1 million in the facility and hire 50 employees by 2013. The new jobs will include engineering, management, customer service and manufacturing positions. The 40,000 square foot facility on the city’s west side is adjacent to the downtown Certified Technology Park. Keco currently employs 25 people at its downtown Indianapolis facility and 20 people at its Statesville, NC location. The expansion allows the company to capitalize on the opportunities available in the domestic and international markets it serves, as well as enhance its high‐volume coating capabilities. Keco will offer its signature Kephos process at the new facility, which was developed for performance racing applications as a replacement for black oxide and anodizing. Kephos attributes include superior abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance, achieving up to 192 hours salt spray resistance per ASTM B-117 when applied at a one-half micron coating thickness, the company said. Founded in 1979 and headquartered in Indianapolis, IN, Keco Coatings specializes in custom services such as research and development prototype and distinct production categories. It is one of 22 DuPont Telflon licensed industrial applicators (LIAs) in the U.S. Industries Keco serves include aerospace, lighting, packaging, food, glass, automation, transportation, filtration, pharmaceutical and performance racing. The range of technologies KECO offers include a full line of signature products, with applications of non‐stick liquids and powders, conductive non-stick, dry film lube, ceramic, corrosion resistant, plasma, thermal barrier and Kephos.
