Global coatings company AkzoNobel recently announced that it is investing 20 million euros ($23.3 million) into its powder coatings facility in Como, Italy.

“We’re implementing a structured expansion plan to boost capacity at both our Como and Arnsberg sites,” said Daniela Vlad, Business Director of AkzoNobel Powder Coatings. “It will help to strengthen our market position and provide us with back up should we encounter supply issues.”

In addition, AkzoNobel says it is introducing advanced equipment and technology to deliver higher productivity rates and efficiency gains, the new operation in Como will also use recycled energy to reduce consumption.

“Although powder coatings are already inherently sustainable, we’re also committed to making our own buildings and facilities as sustainable as possible,” said Vlad. “The company has set a clear ambition to reduce its carbon emissions by 50% in 2030 and become carbon neutral by 2050, so we’re accelerating our efforts to embrace renewable energy and introduce more smart manufacturing technology.”
