Paulding, Ohio - H.E. Orr Company, an innovative coating company centrally located in Paulding, Ohio, provides OEM E-coating and powder coating customers with significant cost savings and superior corrosion protection by combining two processes on one automated line.

Greg Johnson, president of H.E. Orr, explained the rationale behind the manufacturing investment. "We determined that there was a strong demand for combining both coating processes on the same line. Few companies across the country are set up in this manner. This investment in our production facility saves our OEM customers time and money," he said.
