Bonnell Aluminum Expands Anodizing Line
Bonnell Aluminum, Newnan, Ga., plans to expand and upgrade its anodizing capacity to serve the growing commercial-architectural construction market. In response to increased demand for anodizing products, the company expects to invest $5 million to modernize the anodizing line at its Carthage, Tenn., facility. Expected to be fully operational in the second quarter, the new line will increase the plant’s anodizing capacity by 35 percent.
"Our 2012 acquisition of AACOA increased our expertise in the field of anodizing, particularly in terms of processes and technology," says Brook Hamilton, president of Bonnell Aluminum. "This project will benefit from our added knowledge and will raise the bar for anodizing quality and consistency in the commercial-architectural construction market."
Bonnell Aluminum is a subsidiary of Richmond, Va.-based Tredegar Corp. The company produces soft and medium-strength alloy aluminum extrusions for nonresidential building and construction, automotive and specialty markets.
