CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Hanson Group L.L.C. is expanding rapidly—both physically and via new technology, innovations and products.
A versatile producer of a wide assortment of goods, the company recently purchased an 85,000-sq.-ft. plant in Peachtree Corners, Ga., initially dedicated to custom spraying polyurea for various finished products used by original equipment manufacturers.
In addition, the factory casts other polyurea and polyurethane consumer and original equipment manufacturing products, said Lee Hanson, owner and president of the group. Those include its newest offering, custom furniture using urethane foam and sprayed polyurea; sporting goods; transparent armor; and coated utility vehicle components.
To accommodate its growth, THG added several spray booths and high pressure, plural component spray machines along with higher volume plural component elastomer dispensing equipment at the site.
THG's newest facility currently employs about 10, Hanson said, “but this will be increasing as we bring on more business.
“We were going to close our blending facility (also located in the Atlanta area) and move it to the new larger plant, but at the moment we are looking to see if we need that capacity to fill our in-house needs and grow our polyurea private label business.”
He said the company needed the Peachtree Corners factory because the business outgrew its other plant in Atlanta.
