Seaman adds state-of-the-art coating line

Published On: March 1, 2009Categories: Industry News

Richard N. Seaman, president and CEO of Seaman Corp., recently announced that the company has completed the first phase of its capital investment program with the installation of a $5.5 million state-of-the-art liquid coating line at the Bristol, Tenn., manufacturing facility. The new equipment is intended to improve productivity and coating capabilities, and supports the more than $20 million of capital investment Seaman has made since 2001 at both the Wooster, Ohio, and Bristol facilities. The next phase of the program is planned to increase the company’s weaving, compounding and inspection capabilities to support the 100-inch-wide fabric capability, Seaman said, although the timing may be adjusted to compensate for current economic conditions.
