The Protech/Oxyplast Group of Montreal, Canada is pleased to announce that they have reached an agreement to purchase the powder coatings business of Atomized Powder Coatings LLC of Terre Haute, Indiana.  Protech will integrate the Atomized manufacturing operations into its own organization.  Current customers of Atomized Powder Coating will continue to be able to obtain the products they are presently purchasing and as well, will now have access to Protech’s worldwide network of products and technology.

Protech is excited and proud to introduce three new specialty lines of powder coatings.  X-Graf is a line of coatings that allows the easy clean-up of graffiti. Curvecoat permits coated pieces to be post -bended without cracking, splitting or chipping.  And the Z-Series is Protech’s line of super-durable powder coatings.  More information on these products may be obtained by simply clicking on the product icon.

Protech has completed the expansion of its QC and R & D laboratories at its head office location in Montreal.  These state-of-the-art labs have been furnished with the newest of equipment including apparatus for testing which previously had to be out sourced.  The refurnished labs will allow Protechs technical team even more opportunity to develop new products and applications.

Protech is expected to move into its new facility in Fairfield, New Jersey by the beginning of September 2007.  All necessary permits have been obtained and equipment will be moved in immediately.

Protech and Alcatel/Lucent have extended their existing supply agreement.  Under terms of the agreement, Protech remains the exclusive suppler of powder coatings to Alcatel/Lucent and their suppliers and sub-contractors.
