Gabriel Performance Products LLC recently announced it is investing over $2 million to expand capacity in its Ashtabula, Ohio, production facility, intended to meet demand for its epoxy curing agents.
The first stage of this expansion took place in the third quarter of 2017, with the upgrade of several key pieces of equipment that had reached the end of their operational life. This reportedly yielded a 15% increase in production volumes. Engineering work has continued throughout 2018 with the second phase of this investment to be implemented by the fourth quarter. Upon completion the company expects to realize another 15-20% growth in total mercaptan capacity.
“As a world leader in poly-mercaptan curing agents, Gabriel is committed to the highest standard of safety, quality, and personalized customer service,” said Seth Tomasch, CEO. “These upgrades ensure that Gabriel will continue to meet these goals.”
