MesoCoat’s New Manufacturing Facility
On April 7, MesoCoat will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for a new 11,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant in Euclid, Ohio. The construction of this new facility is expected to be completed by September 2011, and it will take an additional two months to complete production set-up. We anticipate that full-scale production will begin early in 2012.
We invite all our stakeholders, mentors, partners, and customers to attend, as well as longtime supporters from the State of Ohio, Ohio Department of Development, JumpStart Inc., City of Euclid, NorTech, Case Western Reserve University, University of Akron, University of Dayton, Edison Materials Technology Center, NASA, Department of Energy, Department of Defense, and NIST.
WHAT WILL IT PRODUCE?
The facility will have a single line ‘CermaClad’ production set-up to produce around 10,000 square meters of corrosion- and wear-resistant clad tubes, pipes, and plates every year. Provisions have already been made for expansion in early 2012, which could double production capability.
Finished PComP products will also be fabricated here for applications in the Aerospace, Oil and Gas, Mining, and Chemical Processing industries. Therefore, the plant will include state-of-art equipment for blasting, application, and testing, as well as a complete turnkey thermal spray solution system for thermal spray and finishing.
WHAT DOES THIS INVESTMENT MEAN?
“This new plant allows us to leverage our deep industry knowledge and product innovation to build new long-term customer relationships,” says Andrew Sherman, CEO of MesoCoat. “It will lead to the creation of at least 30 high-tech jobs over the next three years, and will lay the foundation for another new facility planned in 2012 which would create another 60 to 70 jobs.”
“We sincerely thank the State of Ohio for its strong support since the very beginning,” he adds. “The seed investment of $220,000 through JumpStart, and now the $2 million Ohio Third Frontier award, have played a very significant role in helping us build this first full-scale production facility.”
