Specialty Coating Systems has opened its newest Parylene coating facility, located in Plzeň, Czech Republic, approximately 100 km southwest of Prague. The 930-square-meter facility is SCS’ third European coating facility, joining existing sites in the UK and Ireland, and represents the company’s 10th coating center worldwide. The two-level facility comprises dedicated rooms for shipping/receiving, cleaning and component preparation, a large production area for coating, several offices and a conference room.

“The new coating facility in Plzeň will meet the needs of SCS’ mainland Europe customer base and enable the company to provide high-quality Parylene coating services to a broader regional group of medical device, electronics, automotive, and military/aerospace customers,” said Kevin Walker, managing director, Europe.

“This expansion into mainland Europe is an outgrowth of SCS’ commitment to our customers,” said Terry Bush, president and CEO. “We take pride in supporting our worldwide customers with regional state-of-the-art coating facilities, which are able to support the high-quality services and standards that customers have come to expect from SCS.”
