Carboline Co. has announced plans to convert a 184,500-square-foot building in Dayton, NV, to a coatings manufacturing facility by September.
The plant will be Carboline’s third in the United States. The company, a subsidiary of RPM International, also operates in more than 90 countries worldwide.
Carboline has purchased the building and expects to invest several million dollars in modifying it to accommodate manufacturing and comply with all regulatory codes, the St. Louis-based manufacturer of high-performance industrial coatings and linings said.

The facility will serve the Western U.S. and other regions worldwide.
Production is expected to begin in September 2012. The facility is expected to create 60 jobs when it reaches full production levels.
“We are excited about our new manufacturing facility in the western United States to service Carboline’s growing business,” said Carboline president Richard M. Wilson. “We have enjoyed significant success both domestically and internationally over the past several years, and we continue to invest internally to support our growth.
“This third domestic coatings manufacturing facility supports our long-term strategy of maintaining our leadership position in the industrial and marine coatings markets in North America and internationally.”
