PAVCO's new facility has been under design and construction since mid-summer 2012 and is scheduled to be completed in mid-February of 2013,

The new pilot facility will consist of more than 40 process tanks to include flexible pre- and post-plate capabilities, along with a diverse offering of finishing processes. Finishing systems will include: zinc, nickel, chrome, antimicrobial coatings, copper, alloys and tin. The state-of-the-art facility will also grant the much- needed flexibility of quickly modifying the process lines to add or delete technologies resulting from current industry relevance.

"With our technical department's second major capital improvement in 18 months, PAVCO is well positioned to continue to lead the industry forward by delivering quality products with unmatched service," PAVCO stated in a press release.
