Coating consulting, inspection and services company KTA-Tator Inc. (Pittsburgh) is hosting a ceremonial groundbreaking for its new headquarters in celebration of its 70th anniversary.

The Project

In February, KTA announced that it had purchased a 17.65-acre parcel at RIDC Park West, Enterprise Drive, for $1.02 million for the development of a larger facility.

Coating consulting, inspection and services company KTA-Tator Inc. (Pittsburgh) is hosting a ceremonial groundbreaking for its new headquarters in celebration of its 70th anniversary.

KTA is currently located at RIDC Park West, having since acquired its building in 1981. Over time, it has expanded from a 12,000-square-foot building to 33,500 square feet, with the addition of leasing 2,500 square feet from a neighboring building.

“The primary purpose of the new location is to facilitate more efficient work flow and allow for expansion of both staff, R&D, and testing facilities,” said KTA Chief Executive Officer, Dan Adley, at the time.

“The facility will house metalworking [operations], material testing facilities, analytical laboratories, training facilities, instrument sales and service facilities and office operations for corporate services and all five business units. We foresee adding 20 or more new staff over the next few years.”

Bear Construction and Cannon Design were retained as the design-build team for the project.

The Celebration

Plans for the groundbreaking were initially mentioned when the company announced its 70th anniversary last month.

The ceremony, set for noon on July 2, will include talks from KTA CEO Dan Adley, KTA President Ken Trimber, KTA Board of Directors Chairman (and former owner) Ken Tator and JLL Senior Project Manager Dan McNamara.

KTA estimates that the facility will be move-in ready in November 2020.
