AOC Unveils New Vinyl Ester Reactor in Lakeland Florida Facility
Aug 20, 2014
Global resin supplier AOC LLC recently announced the installation of a new high-performance reactor for the production of vinyl ester resins at its manufacturing plant in Lakeland, Fla. This investment underscores AOC’s commitment to the growing corrosion-resistant composite market which relies on the unique properties of vinyl ester resins.
Driven by unparalleled customer support, technical expertise and product quality, AOC’s comprehensive line of vinyl ester resins has become the preferred choice for corrosion-resistant markets. AOC’s vinyl ester resins meet customer specifications for a range of applications, including water and wastewater treatment, marine, industrial tanks and pipes, and chemical processing.
“This new reactor is a major investment and exemplifies our continued focus on technology and growth,” said AOC vice president of marketing Fletcher Lindberg. “The new equipment greatly expands our capacity, which allows us to serve more customers and meet their needs for larger jobs.”
The Florida manufacturing plant was the chosen location to maximize AOC’s global logistics network. Installation of the new state-of-the-art reactor started more than a year ago with actual resin production beginning in March. The reactor utilizes AOC’s proprietary manufacturing and control systems that set the world standard for producing resins of exacting consistency.
