Luvata announces $5 million expansion in Mexico

Growth plans bring coil corrosion protection closer to customers

(19 January 2012).  Luvata, a world leader in metal solution manufacturing, heat transfer technology and engineering and design services, announces plans for its coil corrosion protection coatings expansion into Mexico.  ElectroFin® E-coat is recognized internationally by HVAC/R equipment manufacturer’s as the best corrosion protection for fin-tube and micro-channel heat exchangers in coastal environments.

Luvata’s HVAC/R coil corrosion protection coatings include both factory-applied ElectroFin® E-coat and spray-applied Insitu®, which retain the operating efficiency of units longer while reducing maintenance, replacement and operating costs, ultimately extending the length of service of HVAC&R systems.  Luvata is now bringing both coil coating options closer to the growing community of HVAC manufacturers in the Monterrey, Mexico area. 

“With our customer base growing in Mexico, it’s important that we continue to grow with them,” states Luvata CEO John Peter Leesi.  “This expansion helps us and our customers save on energy, freight and logistic costs, while opening up capacity for Luvata in the US.”

Although the exact location of the facility has not been decided, plans include a 50,000 - 60,000 square foot building to serve HVAC/R manufacturers in the Monterrey area.  Targeting to be fully operational by the first quarter of 2013, Luvata estimates 40-50 employees will be needed for operating the facility at full capacity.

The new facility in Mexico, joins Luvata’s two other full service coil-coating centers in Louisville, Kentucky and Jacksonville, Texas in offering the factory applied corrosion solution ElectroFin® E-coat as well as the spray applied coil corrosion protection Insitu®.

Luvata’s spray applied Insitu is also available through its other locations in Tampa, Florida and San Leandro and Temecula, California.  ElectroFin® E-coat and Luvata Insitu® both come with a five year warranty and are water-based, which makes them environmentally appealing as well. 

Additional details concerning the exact location of Luvata ElectroFin’s facility in Mexico will be available later in the first quarter 2012.
