A milestone groundbreaking ceremony has taken place at Akzo Nobel’s North American Wood Coatings facility in High Point, North Carolina, to officially kickstart a EUR 50 million investment, which will transform the site’s manufacturing capability.

100th anniversary in the North American wood coatings industry

Announced in April, the extensive upgrade will include installing state-of-the-art production technology, as well as building a new raw materials warehouse, research lab and technical application center. The ceremony was staged just a few months after the company marked 100 years of being in the wood coatings industry in North America.

“This is an historic moment which will help us reinforce our market leadership and further strengthen our commitment to our customers in North America,” said AkzoNobel CEO Thierry Vanlancker, who was joined at the event by company executives, state and local dignitaries, customers and more than 200 site employees.
