Because of its rail access, Teknor will use the Attleboro plant, the company’s oldest facility, located a few miles from Teknor’s world headquarters, for offloading of chemicals. According to Jonathan Riley, VP and business director of Teknor Color, the sale will not affect Teknor’s other manufacturing locations in Jacksonville, TX and Henderson, KY. An expansion of the Henderson plant costing approximately $1 million was completed last month, which included a new facility for producing dry color.
“This is a perfect fit,” says Howard DeMonte, president of Breen. “Teknor’s product line and customer base complements our market focus. A seamless transition with consistent product quality and service for our new customers will be our main objective.” —[email protected]
