nCoat Announces Plans to Increase Work Force in North Carolina
WHITSETT, NC | Posted on April 12th, 2007
nCoat, Inc. (OTCBB: NCOA) ("nCoat" or the "Company") celebrated the Grand Opening of its headquarters recently with the announcement that the North Carolina-based facility operated by wholly owned subsidiary High Performance Coatings, Inc. ("HPC") plans to increase its workforce to a targeted level of approximately 300 workers within the next two years. The North Carolina plant applies both nano-formulated and micron particulate coatings to motorsports, automotive, diesel engine trucking, recreational vehicle and aerospace industry customers.
Grand Opening festivities kicked off on April 5th with the HPC-sponsored 50th anniversary spring drag race at nearby historic Piedmont Dragway, a launching pad for the careers of several motorsport legends. The HPC Big Dog Shootout provided an excitement-filled event culminating in a grand finale race won by Todd Tutterow in his supercharged Mustang, racing the one-eighth mile drag strip at 168 miles per hour in 4.28 seconds. HPC regularly participates in many of motorsports' premier local and national events. HPC's motorsports customers have long been among the early adopters of leading edge coating technologies. From beginnings in the motorsports industry, coatings have found mainstream uses in consumer industries.
The following day, nCoat and HPC hosted a community event on the grounds of their new Whitsett, North Carolina headquarters and manufacturing plant. The Grand Opening event showcased over 1 million dollars worth of exotic, historic and specialty vehicles including race cars, heavy transport vehicles, street rods, collector cars and motorcycles.
A beautiful spring day in North Carolina provided a perfect backdrop for the successful and well-attended event. Representatives from local municipalities, state representatives, corporate and university officers and researchers, employees and families as well as members of the media and public gathered for the official ribbon cutting and festivities.
Notable individuals in attendance included Secretary James Fain, Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Commerce and many of his key economic development and science advisors, as well as Mr. Stephen M. Ross, Mayor of the City of Burlington, representing nearly 50,000 citizens located adjacent to the Whitsett plant.
During the ceremonies, Company CEO Paul Clayson expressed the degree of pride he felt regarding the employees' level of commitment to the company and their customers. Speaking to the nCoat decision to locate in North Carolina, Secretary Fain stated, "We are not surprised that you are so proud of the people who work here. I think that's what North Carolinians are all about... You will be a leading edge company in this 21st century economy... I feel truly blessed that you have put a big anchor in North Carolina."
Company CEO, Paul Clayson commented, "This great turnout provided an excellent opportunity to share a bit of our company with our new neighbors and colleagues. In this plant, the future of commercial nanotechnology science becomes reality where HPC helps provide technology that improves clean air standards while improving performance of diesel engine trucks and helps race vehicles operate cooler, more efficiently, and faster. We are proud to lead the way in our industry and support this dynamic regional economy."
