With a second state-of-the-art finishing system, Vision Coatings will deliver twice the volume and flexibility to keep up with increasing customer demand

We are stepping up to the challenge of delivering more without sacrificing on the range of colour options, short lead times, and high quality finishing our customers have come to expect.

Vision Coatings Limited (Vision Coatings), a member of the Vision Group of Companies (Vision Group), announced today the acquisition of a second UV ToughCoat finishing system. The addition of a second system will increase the company’s overall finishing capacity and reduce already-low lead times for the customer.

In March 2020 – just before the COVID-19 pandemic – Vision Coatings painted a record-breaking 1.5 million linear feet. The automated UV ToughCoat, an AAMA 615 certified system, plays a significant role in the high quality and capacity achieved in the Vision Coatings operation. The systems offer high-volume production, superior heat-resistance, extreme durability, and a broad spectrum of colour choices for extrusion companies, window fabricators, and others in the industry. With demand for the first UV ToughCoat line reaching maximum capacity in Vision Coatings’ first full year of operation, the company invested in a second system to keep up with demand and provide a contingency for unexpected large orders.

“We’ve been blown away by customer demand for our paint and finishing services, and the addition of a second UV ToughCoat system will allow us to scale our operations out further,” said Tony Margiotta, President of Vision Coatings Limited. “We’ve also made some technical upgrades to the new unit, which will allow us to coat more complicated, non-standard shapes and sizes on our second line. We are stepping up to the challenge of delivering more without sacrificing on the range of colour options, short lead times, and high quality finishing our customers have come to expect.”

Vision Coatings has also made R&D investments in quality control and product testing. The company has always performed rigorous tests for its finishing materials and techniques, and now they are expanding their capabilities through the acquisition of a QUV Weathering Tester. The QUV system, over the course of several days, reproduces the damage caused by sunlight, rain, dew, and other elements that a window or door would typically suffer over months or years. The QUV Weathering Tester will further ensure that all of Vision Coatings’ finished products stand the test of time.

According to Vision Coatings Plant Manager, Ben Martin, “Our investments in these sophisticated solutions have been wise ones from many perspectives, but, as with all technologies, they are only as good as the technicians who operate them.” Martin continued, “it’s the experience and expertise gained through continual learning and process refinement that truly sets our operation apart in the marketplace.”

The company is accepting orders for their second line beginning immediately, but the capacity for the latter half of 2020 is already selling out fast. Contact info@visioncoatings.ca for more information, or to inquire about an order.
