Manufacturers Chemicals Installs Second Nauta Blender At Dalton Facility
Manufacturers Chemicals LLC, Cleveland, Tenn., a division of Spartanburg-based Synalloy Corp. — has
expanded its Dalton, Ga., operation with the addition of a Nauta Conical Blender from Taiwan-based
Nauta. According to Manufacturers Chemicals Director Mike Junkins, the machine replaces
conventional ribbon blenders and rapidly blends materials with exceptional uniformity. It is a
highly efficient system, as it can be cleaned and dried between batches in less than 30 minutes,
"We installed our first Nauta Blender last year and we have been astonished at the dramatic improvements in quality coupled with exponential increases in productivity and labor cost reductions," said Chuck Steig, president, Manufacturers Chemicals. "With the return we have seen on our first Nauta the decision to add the second was easy even in a difficult economy." He added that going forward, the company will handle all color-blending using the Nauta blenders.
