We are pleased to announce that our east coast facility in Statesville, North Carolina is live and operational!
With the completion of building renovations and our new equipment installed, we’ve begun to build awnings and screens. We have a team of eight hard at work, assembling lateral arm awnings and learning the rest of the Rainier Shade product line.
Automated Powder Coating
Our powder coating operation in North Carolina spans two floors. Four hundred feet of chain-driven track moves our parts through the spray and bake process upstairs in just 30 minutes. Then we send the parts downstairs through a 30’ x 10’ hole that we cut through the floor (check out the pictures to believe it!). The whole process is automated, so we have tons of capacity to grow and expand.
The equipment in our new plant includes a brand new Eastman cutting table with a conveyor belt cutting surface. We have materials arriving every day and people ready to be trained.
Now Shipping Power Screens
We shipped our first SRS power screens on May 29th!
Now that we’ve begun production, we can ease the workload in our Seattle facility and deliver products to our east coast customers even faster!
