Coatings maker MetoKote Corp. recently held a ceremony to mark the opening of its Melbane, N.C., facility.
Customers and local officials took part in the ceremonies.
MetoKote customer GKN Driveline said the new location played a part in the company’s selection of MetoKote as a supplier.
"We were looking for more than just a supplier. We wanted a company that offered the highest quality coating services in a location very close to our Roxboro facility, minimizing logistics costs," said Mike Gallagher, GKN purchasing director. "We felt MetoKote was a great option."
MetoKote’s president and CEO, Jeff Oravitz, thanked the company for their business.
"MetoKote was pleased to have been chosen by GKN and is looking forward to a great business relationship,” he said. “We have valued them as a customer for the past several years and are thrilled to move to the next level with them."
