New Paint Factory For Sigma In Amsterdam

Sigma Coatings BV has announced plans to build a new paint factory and technological center in Amsterdam.

The factory will be situated on a 32.5-acre site in the industrial harbor area on the west side of the city.

Sigma has an option to expand onto another 30 acres.

Over 129,000 square feet are designated for the building of the production plant, which will provide a capacity of 50,000 tons of paints.

The new factory will facilitate the production of an extensive assortment of high-tech products, including the new generation of waterborne protective coatings.

The new arrangement will also help to smooth the transition of a product as its production goes from laboratory-scale to full plant output levels. Research groups working on industrial lacquers, marine paints, construction paints, building and DIY products, as well as color and pigmentation, will support departments such as an analystic laboratory, physical laboratory and process automation.
