Linetec Expands Distribution of its Paints & Coatings Services to Southwest America
- Jul 13, 2012
WAUSAU, Wis. -- Responding to customers across the Southwest, Linetec has expanded its service and distribution to include Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
Rob Seils, Sales Manager for Linetec's South-Central territory, provides customers across the region with liquid painting, powder coating, and anodize finishing services for architectural aluminum. Examples of customers' products include window and door systems', storefront framing, sun shades, light shelves, canopies, column covers, panels and flat sheet.
As the nation's largest independent architectural finisher, Linetec operates its own fleet of trucks providing customers with weekly pickup and delivery services. "This makes outsourced finishing an easy, turnkey operation. Customers get the benefit of a dedicated carrier, which provides convenient, safe and efficient transport of our customers' material. They don't need to spend time finding and scheduling a contracted hauler to make the delivery," says Seils. "We know that material will be picked up and delivered on time and on schedule. Using experienced drivers, we also ensure material is loaded properly to protect against damage."
Linetec offers several managed trucking options, including partial loads, which help manage freight costs by effectively sharing a truck with other customers in the delivery area," adds Seils.
Linetec was founded in 1983, by its parent company Apogee Enterprises Inc. Apogee's companies specialize in glass, coatings and architectural products, so establishing a finishing company focused on architectural products was a natural fit.
The increasing demand by architects for windows of different colors spawned Linetec. As hardly anyone was specializing in coating architectural products, this was a niche waiting to be filled.
Linetec started in Wausau, Wisconsin in June of 1983 with a small facility and a single paint line. Scott Platta managed Linetec with 20 employees and a 40,000 square foot building capable of applying enamel, acrylic and Kynar paint finishes.
