Company Now Has Ten Coil Coating Lines in North America
Pittsburgh, PA /PRNewswire/ - VORTEQ Coil Finishers (VORTEQ or the Company), a leading provider of coil coating services for aluminum and steel products, today announced the acquisition of the coil coating assets owned by Almexa Alumino S.A. DE C.V. (Almexa). As part of the transaction, the former Almexa coil coating operation, located in Mexico City, will be renamed VORTEQ Mexico. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

"The transaction will add incremental capacity, additional capabilities, and geographic reach to our extensive North American footprint.
