MetoKote and Volkswagen form partnership



Published September 19, 2011
MetoKote Corporation has been selected by Volkswagen Group of America to provide 100 percent of the German auto manufacturer's service part e-coat needs for its Passat passenger car being produced at its first U.S.-based vehicle assembly facility in Chattanooga, Tenn.

MetoKote's regional coating service center located in Lebanon, Tenn., will receive orders via VW's advance shipping notice (ASN) system, and will in turn, e-coat replacement body panels—hoods, fenders, doors, trunk lids—as well as various other service parts including welded assemblies and brackets. MetoKote Lebanon will also provide hem sealing around replacement doors, barcode labeling, packaging and direct shipping to a distribution center for eventual delivery to VW dealerships across the nation.

In support of the new business MetoKote added another shift of e-coat and sealing production and has added seven additional employees per shift.
