TROY, OH | Spinnaker Coating, a manufacturer of adhesive-coated papers and films, completed its second Open House celebration in late January. The gatherings, both social and informational, were hosted at the company’s two new Slitting Distribution Centers—one in Atlanta and one in the Los Angeles area.
Opened in the second half of 2012, the facilities offer one-day transit time to much of the southeastern and western US. In addition to providing faster delivery times for a wide variety of trimless products, another service enhancement coming from the expansion is extended order coverage.
“We were pleased with the turnout of customers at both locations,” says George Fuehrer, executive VP of Spinnaker Coating. “It was a great opportunity for us to show people around, explain the machinery and our process, and strengthen relationships between our customers and Spinnaker personnel.”
The new operations add to the company’s other slitting sites in New York, Chicago, and the coating and slitting center in Troy.
