Linetec to expand with a third anodize line in Wisconsin
adding jobs, capacity, capabilities; maintaining lead times
Linetec’s anodize is specified on architectural aluminum products, such as window and door systems, storefront framing, sun shades,
light shelves, canopies, column covers, panels and flat sheets. Unlike other finishes, anodizing highlights aluminum’s metallic
appearance. Because it is an integral part of the substrate, the anodic coating results in a hard, durable substance providing
excellent wear and abrasion resistance with minimal maintenance.|
The new anodize line, like Linetec’s other anodize lines, are fully automated and use the most recent technology. Linetec also pioneered environmental innovations in anodize that resulted in its industry-leading, eco-friendly anodize process. Compared with traditional anodize, Linetec’s process reduces waste by as much as 90 percent, decreases energy use, creates recyclable byproducts and enhances the durability and lifecycle of the finished product.
Once the planned expansion is completed, Linetec’s Wausau campus will span 670,000 square feet and provide room to further enhance production flow throughout the facilities. Along with its anodize lines, this space houses a comprehensive breadth of finishing and related services including liquid paint and powder coat finishing, thermal improvement and stretch forming services, warehousing, packaging and distribution.
