Alcore Moves PAA Priming In-House

02 June 2003

Alcore has moved the priming line for their aluminum honeycomb into their Edgewood, Maryland facility.

For more than fifteen years, the company has chosen to anodize the foil in-house, but apply the primer at an outside facility. After a recent facility consolidation opened up some additional floor space, the opportunity presented itself to put the priming line right alongside the anodizing line, in a move designed to shorten lead times and enhance product quality.

“We always had plans to put the two lines under one roof”, said Alan Baldwin, President of Alcore. “By bringing the entire process into our facility, we’re going to have even more flexibility in product mix, as well as quicker turnaround times for delivery.”
