AkzoNobel invests in wood coatings facility in High Point, North Carolina

HIGH POINT, N.C. (News release) -- A milestone multi-million-dollar investment by AkzoNobel is set to transform its wood coatings facility in High Point, North Carolina, into a best-in-class manufacturing site - and further strengthen the company's market position in the US.

The transformation will involve reorganizing manufacturing operations at the site and will include the addition of automatic dosing unit technology to produce paint more efficiently. A new raw materials warehouse, research lab and technical application center are also being built. Construction is due to begin in April 2019, with rolling projects expected to be completed by 2020.

Thierry Vanlancker, AkzoNobel CEO, says: "Investing in High Point will increase our comprehensive North American supply capability for wood finishes, which also includes our plants in Roanoke, Virginia; Salem, Oregon; Warwick, Quebec; and Port Hope, Ontario."

Today, the High Point facility covers 30 acres and employs more than 250 people. The site produces a wide range of products, including UV, solvent-based and water-based wood coatings, such as paints, stains and lacquers.
