Duralar, a Developer of Ultra-Hard Coatings to Set Up U.S. HQs in Tucson



Published March 31, 2014
Duralar Technologies, a global nanotechnology company and developer of the Duralar family of ultra-hard coatings,  has established its U.S. headquarters in the Tucson region of Arizona. The company has leased a 5,000 square-foot building at 7620 North Hartman Lane and plans a $6 million capital investment. The new facility will be open by May 2014.

Duralar Technologies was cofounded by P&P Holding and Andrew Tudhope, a Silicon Valley engineer/entrepreneur with a number of successful high-technology ventures to his credit. P&P Holding is also the parent of two other coating companies, Protec Surface Technologies and ProtimLafer, both of Italy. The breadth and depth of this coating experience along with the merging of Silicon Valley and Italian technologies gives Duralar a significant advantage in the marketplace. Duralar coatings incorporate proprietary diamond-based nanotechnology that provides unprecedented hardness for numerous applications in industries such as oil & gas, automotive, pulp & paper and aerospace.

Duralar Technologies' European headquarters are located in Bedizzole, Italy, which is also home to the company's research and development and equipment manufacturing operations. The company has additional facilities and offices in Brazil, Mexico and the U.S. Duralar's new U.S. headquarters plans to hire approximately 30 new positions over the next year. The jobs at the facility will be a mix of material science, chemical and electrical engineering positions, technicians and management positions.
