Express Coat’s facilities include two buildings with a total of 67,120 Square Feet and 5.12 acres. The main building is 55,120 square feet providing our main offices, lab, and total process equipment area in addition to a covered loading area with 8 loading docks. The second building at our facility provides warehouse space with additional loading and unloading areas.


Process Equipment

Our process equipment includes two, conveyor-driven Autophoretic® 800 series coating lines. Line A and B have a “parts window” or total output size of 38” x 62” and 27” x 45” respectively. The two output sizes allow us to process a variety of sizes and shapes; parts as small as a bolt or nut and as large as a 74” drive shaft. The two lines also provide Express Coat with the flexibility that is required to meet “just-in-time” applications with little or no down-time. Line A and B both include a 9 stage process which is detailed below.
