The addition of a specialty coatings steel supplier to our community strengthens our region’s ability to support the significant manufacturing base we enjoy in Southeast Tennessee and the South as a whole. We look forward to the company being a fixture in our local community for years to come.”

The Cleveland facility is equipped with state of the art Physical Vapour Deposition Arc systems technology. This location will feature Duplex coatings including CROSAL PLUS, TIGRAL and VARIANTIC, ideally suited for a variety of applications ranging from metalforming to die-casting and plastic injection molding.
