Nashville, TN - AkzoNobel is investing $3.6 million at its coil and extrusion coatings manufacturing facility in Garcia, Mexico, to increase production capacity and efficiency for its customers across North America – including Mexico and the southwest region of the U.S.

This investment follows the previously announced $70 million investments in the company’s other industrial coatings manufacturing site in North America in Huron, Ohio, and its manufacturing and R&D facilities at High Point, North Carolina.

The investment in the Garcia site will enable the plant to increase production of coatings by approximately 35% by the third quarter of 2024. Stage one of the investment has already been completed, with the installation of 12 new portable tanks with varying batch size capacity, two new mixers for portable tanks, and a new fixed tank with 1,200 gallons of capacity.

The company’s Garcia site in Mexico is one of its three coil and extrusion coatings-focused manufacturing facilities in North America, including Columbus, Ohio, which specializes in coil and extrusion coatings, and Huron, Ohio, a site producing the resins required for these coating systems. The site in Huron includes a recently completed pilot plant enabling more agility in meeting market demands.

“Our customers are increasingly prioritizing sustainability, durability and performance and demand for coil and extrusion coatings is projected to increase over the next few years. By expanding production and increasing efficiency at our facilities across North America and elsewhere, we’re able to continue growing with our customers, whilst driving innovation and delivering high-quality products,” said Manoel Rodrigues, AkzoNobel’s Regional Commercial Director for Coil Americas.
