PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, has partnered with ETAS Metal Roof & Wall Systems (ETAS) to feature ETAS as the primary sponsor on the hood of JR Motorsports’ No. 9 Axalta Chevrolet driven by William Byron at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday, August 18, 2017. Byron has already captured race fans’ attention with three wins this season in the NASCAR® Xfinity Series (NXS).
ETAS Metal Roof & Wall Systems, a manufacturer of painted coil products and pre-engineered metal buildings, is relocating to a new state-of-the-art facility with liquid spray capabilities in Mineola, Texas. The 130,000-square foot facility will provide resources to improve service and selection. Future expansion includes powder coating to augment ETAS’ door division, Powerlift Doors of Texas. ETAS’ growth has also allowed the company to acquire Mineola Pipe and Steel, a fabrication company, and Lake Country Machine, a small machine shop also located in Mineola.
“ETAS is dedicated to innovation and as a result, is expanding quickly,” said Mike Cash, Senior Vice President and President of Industrial Coatings at Axalta. “Axalta values partners like ETAS who allow us the opportunity to play a role in providing an exceptional experience to their end customers.”
“This is an exciting time for ETAS,” said Josh Deen, Chief Operations Officer of ETAS. “Sponsoring the No. 9 Axalta Chevrolet is a great way to celebrate our relocation to a new site with added capacity which fuels our overall growth as a metal building manufacturer.”
