Lintec, a paint and anodize finisher, is building a 30,000-square-foot addition to its anodize facility in Wausau, Wis. To support the addition and growth of its business, the company also is increasing its anodize staff by more than 10 percent, according to a company release.
According to the announcement, a 33 percent increase in capacity for anodize finishing of architectural aluminum will be on-line and available by January 2014. Examples of customers’ products include door and window systems, storefront framing, sun shades, light shelves, canopies, column covers, panels and flat sheets.
“We’re as busy as we’ve ever been,” says Linetec president Rick Marshall. “This is the sixth building expansion in the past ten years. We continue to grow and serve our customers with the quality and reliability that they’ve come to expect from Linetec.”
Construction of Linetec’s anodize facility addition began in August and will be completed by the end of October.
In addition to expanding its capacity, Linetec also expanded its geographic reach. Earlier this year, it added more service and distribution routes, including its first regular route to Toronto, Canada.
