Since the facility opened in 1978, the Hudson location has evolved to be our central operation for fluoropolymer coatings. After continuous re-investment and upgrades, we house state-of-the-art PTFE coating application services—from prototype through large volume production, coating formulation development and manufacturing, and central applications development and engineering services. Hudson is certified to ISO-13485.
Most of the services to support customer coating selection, early stage sampling, coating and application evaluation and testing, and process development are provided at this facility. When new capabilities are required by our customers, including process and application development, or a new coating formulation, the work is normally done in Hudson.
The corporate and management teams are primarily located in Hudson.
