NCI Building Systems, Inc. today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, NCI Group, Inc., has opened its premier Metal Coaters Coil Coating Facility in Middletown, OH.
The facility, previously operated by Material Sciences Corp., was purchased in June 2010 for $4.9 million in cash and has since been substantially revamped and modernized to become state-of-the-art. The opening represents the extension of NCI’s coil coating operations into the upper Midwest and Northeast, which will effectively provide the Company’s Buildings and Components groups with more cost-effective regionalized access to coated products and services. Likewise, it will enable additional capacity and reach for the Coaters group to service its diversified base of external customers.
The facility is capable of coating various gauges and widths of metal for a wide variety of applications. With the Middletown plant, the Coil Coating segment now operates four strategically located light-gauge, coil coating facilities providing maximum supply chain flexibility for its customers, and bringing the total number of NCI manufacturing facilities to 38.
“The commencement of our Middletown operations signifies an important milestone in our strategy to evolve our position of market leadership through high-value acquisitions,” said Norman C. Chambers, NCI’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are confident this facility will provide numerous advantages to all three of our business segments by expanding our ability to serve new and existing customers economically and expeditiously.”
