Dunmore Corp to upgrade its manufacturing facility for coating products in Germany
October 7, 2011
Dunmore Corporation's sister company Dunmore Europe GmbH has invested $17 million (€12 million) to upgrade its headquarters and manufacturing facility in Freiburg, Germany to meet increasing demand for its coated and laminated products in the solar, automotive, insulation and aerospace industries. The modified Freiburg facility will encompass a new coating line for coated and laminated products with widths of more than two meters. The new coating line joins two existing lines making films for applications such as solar photovoltaic backsheets, insulation films and high-performance labels. The new production line can also run at a wide range of speeds, from 30 meters per minute to 400 meters per minute, which expands the range of coatings and products Dunmore can produce for the European and Asian markets, the company said. The new line also features updated process controls, video inspection systems and advanced instrumentation that makes quality control easier.
