Our Cuba, Missouri, facility is 133,000 sq. ft. with more than 140 employees dedicated to metal finishing. Our finishing capacities will support products up to 42 ft. Both facilities operate 3 shifts with additional capacity as needed. These lines operate in conjunction with our existing lines, giving us over 100 chemical process tanks of various sizes to accommodate a wide range of processing needs. Our Oklahoma operations include an 80,000 sq. ft. distribution facility to support internal raw material and finished goods inventory.
