Wausau, Wis.-based Linetec, is expanding its capacity and capabilities with a third anodize line. The 120,000-square-foot addition and associated improvements are estimated to cost $15.3 million and add nearly 100 employees. In January 2014, Linetec opened a 30,000-square-foot addition to its existing anodize lines, which are operating at capacity.

“We plan to have this additional line fully functional by summer 2015 and are breaking ground immediately to get the site work completed prior to the cold, winter months …” says Rick Marshall, Linetec president. “As the market continues to show strong recovery, our customers continue to experience tremendous growth and we are expanding to meet their needs.”

Once the planned expansion is completed, the company’s Wausau facility will span 670,000 square feet.
