IFS Coatings has broken ground on a new facility located next to its current headquarters and manufacturing plant in Gainesville, TX. The first phase of the project will be a 40,000-square-foot facility, which is part of the 70,000-square-foot expansion plan and is set to open later this year. The expansion will support the company’s increased capacity and new technology for manufacturing thermoplastic powders, functional products, and environmentally responsible powder for alternate substrates. The new building will include space for manufacturing, warehousing, and development projects. (5/21)
