We at Technicote have been hard at work rebuilding the Cuyahoga Falls, OH plant, and wanted to provide you with an update. It’s been nearly nine months since the fire that destroyed most of our manufacturing facility on Marc Dr. in Cuyahoga Falls.
As you’re aware, we relocated some of the equipment that wasn’t damaged in the fire to an offsite facility in nearby Akron, OH synthroid 75 mcg. We continue to operate one coater in the Marc Dr. facility. The balance of the business that had been supplied from Cuyahoga Falls was transferred to other Technicote plants.
Technicote’s goal immediately following the fire was to replace the lost capacity with more capable equipment, while retaining the talented workforce that has been a big part of our success. After evaluating a number of different locations, we decided to rebuild the plant on the same site, with the goal to have a larger and more capable facility than the one we lost.
We’re delighted to let you know we’re ahead of schedule on many of our activities. The building is 90% completed, and new equipment is now being delivered to the plant. The installation process will start later this month. Startup of this equipment will be in the 4th quarter. We expect to ship product to customers late in the 4th quarter.
You’re invited to stop by Technicote Booth #1547 during Label Expo Americas, 2012, where we’ll be showing a slideshow of “before” and “after” pictures.
We would like to thank our customers for their continued patience during this recovery process. Through persistent effort and dedication, Technicote will attain its goal to improve manufacturing capabilities and service to its customers for years to come.
