On the eve of releasing its new PVC decking and railing system, Dayton Technologies Inc. announced the addition of extrusion capacity and plans to build a finished-goods warehouse. The Monroe, Ohio-based vinyl profile manufacturer recently added 15 extruders to its 345,000-square-foot plant, to accommodate an increase in business and the new product line, said William Uhl, director of corporate development and planning.
"We will be adding more extruders as we come out with new products," he added.
Meantime, Dayton broke ground April 1 on a 155,000-square-foot addition that will serve as the finished-goods warehouse, slated for completion in September.
"We had warehouse space in the original building, and we lost that space because we put additional extruders in," Uhl said.
The building projects all are part of a $20 million expansion plan that also included a recently opened, 200 million-pound-per-year blending and compounding facility, and a 20,000-square-foot raw materials warehouse, Uhl said.
Dayton Technologies is owned by Deceuninck Plastics Industries NV of Hooglede, Belgium.
