Calico Coatings has embarked on a $3 million, 8,500 square foot expansion to its headquarters at Balsom Ridge Business Park in Denver, North Carolina. Upon completion, Calico’s state-of-the-art facility will total nearly 30,000 sq. ft. and house over 40 employees and all company operations.

“Customers are demanding faster delivery and increased capacity,” Calico Coatings Owner Tracy Trotter said. “The only way we can keep up with this level of demand is to increase our productivity, and that means more coating chambers.”

With an expected completion date of December 1, 2018, the new addition will house production for thin film coatings including Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) and Chromium Nitride (CrN) processes, freeing up the existing space for expansion of thick film coatings and the shipping and receiving area.

A new coating chamber will be implemented, with two additional chambers being added every year for the next five years for a total of 10 new chambers in all.  The new chambers will be three to five times larger than the current editions, allowing Calico to coat more parts at once and increase turnaround time.
