Erie Powder / EPC Powder are very pleased to announce that the new “North East” facility is producing powder coatings. The new manufacturing plant, located in the town of North East Pennsylvania (10 minutes from Erie PA) has been under construction for most of 2008, but the first commercial production from the new powder lines was manufactured and shipped in November 2008.
Brian Coutts, President of the two companies, welcomed the news of the plant opening and production. “This is a huge step forward for Erie Powder / EPC and will allow our company to have much improved service to the US market.” Mr Coutts noted that the plant location is central to a large portion of the north and central US, and makes a very economical shipping point for the powder products.
The new facility is a 40,000 square foot building on 22 acres of land just off Interstate 90 in Erie PA.

Erie Powder and EPC Powder Manufacturing are on board for COATINGS 2008, to be held Sept 23 – 25 at the Indianapolis Convention Center. Erie has exhibited at this show every two years when in Indiana. This year marks the first year that Erie’s affiliate EPC Powder will be joining us.
This show is put on by the PCI (Powder Coating Institute) and is an excellent show for those interested in powder and coatings. It is a great show for those newly interested or getting into powder, but also for those company’s that have been using powder for years.

We are happy to announce the arrival of the new color brochures, “Not Just Black and White, Volume 2”
The new brochures show the current stock collection at Erie / EPC. A few colors have been discontinued from the previous brochure (Volume 1) and a few have been added. Due to customer request, we have also increased the color chip size on the brochure to make it easy to see and compare to other sample chips.
Along with the new brochures, Erie is also sending out information on some of our company publications, such as our “Trouble Shooting Guide”, information on weatherability of powder coatings, and more.
The new brochures and publication information are available and being shipped out to our customers starting December 2007. If you want a brochure or publication, just phone fax or email our office.

We are very happy to finally announce our new US manufacturing location. Our new building is in the town of North East Pennsylvania. This facility will be a full service facility, with manufacturing, lab, office and warehousing functions. We expect to be manufacturing in North East in late winter / early Spring.
The new facility has lots of room to house current operations, and any expansion plans. The North East facility is comprised of a single building, 40,000 sq. ft. of mixed office and industrial space. Erie took possession of the building at the start of November 2007. We will be posting contact information for the new US facility shortly.

In other new developments, Erie is now offering a “zinc rich” epoxy primer for steel substrates. This product is usually recommended for shot blasted steel, that is often not treated before powder coating. The zinc rich primer can significantly improve overall corrosion resistance of the finished product. This has been actively used in industries such as for truck tire refinishing. Now, after extensive testing against competitive products, we find that our product is as good or superior to our competitors for corrosion resistance.
There have been numerous changes in powder coatings in general, and Erie is helping to lead the industry towards newer and more innovative products.
Several product lines of note have experienced changes over the last year. These include:
Superdurables: Erie now offers a complete line of superdurable finishes. Most any color can now be custom made in these coatings, down to a single box. The finish on the superdurable products is excellent, and compares very well with standard outdoor durable polyesters for orange peel. The adhesion and flexibility of these products has been markedly improved over the years as well. The cost on these products has also dropped substantially in the last year, so if you just thought they were a little too expensive in the past, now might be the time to have another look.
Graffiti Resistant Finishes: Erie offers several graffiti resistant finishes. This allows a range of choice which is unequalled in the industry.
Super Chemical Resistant products: The “J Series” epoxy and urethane finishes are available. These products have incredible resistance to most chemicals. The “J Series” line of products have been tested to the SEFA chemical standards for chemical resistance.
If you would like any information on the above products, don’t hesitate to give us a call at the office location, or call your local sales representative.
