"The 10,000 square ft. Quakertown plant has been designed for maximum efficiency, high output and growth," said Terry Holmes, President and COO of nCoat. "Automation and a new coating process allows for a more thorough application by fewer technicians. Plant layout was designed to produce the highest number of parts per square foot of production space of any JET-HOT® facility. In addition, recent internal innovations in JET-HOT® plant design have created a 15% increase in unit output per man-hour," Holmes added.
The plant processes automotive, motorcycle and diesel engine truck parts from individual customers, high-volume dealers and distributors and tier one suppliers to original equipment manufacturers. In its current configuration this plant increases capacity at JET-HOT by 30%. The new plant location also offers easy access from the Pennsylvania Turnpike, and is logistically complimentary to gaining access to several multi-million dollar accounts. The Quakertown location has already been instrumental in securing new business from Volvo Trucks of North America worth an estimated $1.5M per year.
JET-HOT® operates a multi-step production process that includes thermal degreasing, abrasive blast stripping with virgin aluminum oxide, double-coating (inside and out on headers), and high temperature curing. With a "modular" design, capacity at the new plant can double with a minimum of structural modification. Holmes added that the Quakertown area offered the benefit of a diversified labor and management pool from which to draw production staff.
Within 30 days of the launch of full production at the plant in April, several new high-volume customers in close proximity contracted with JET-HOT® to begin production from the new facility. Through aggressive marketing and sales efforts, the Quakertown plant realized over $90,000 in revenue in the first 30 days of full production without transferring any business originated at other JET-HOT® plants.
One of the most recognized brands in aftermarket exhaust systems coatings, JET-HOT® now offers a full line of internal and external coating options not previously available under one roof. JET-HOT®'s acquisition by nCoat brings new internal engine coatings to the JET-HOT® product line. For nCoat, and its subsidiary HPC, the JET-HOT® brand provides an immediate customer base as well as recognized world-class coatings innovation to add to its ongoing research and development.
