Denso North America, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Winn & Coales International, had the grand opening ceremony for its new facility in Houston, TX on September 13, 2019.
Located on 9710 Telge Road, the new facility has three buildings covering over 110,000 ft2 on 11 acres, making it the largest facility operated by Winn & Coales globally. This facility has expanded manufacturing capability for support of Denso’s existing liquid coatings and marine piling rehabilitation business, enlarged warehouse capacity, expanded research and development and testing capabilities, enlarged training facilities and plenty of room for future growth.
This new facility will be the focal point of product development and manufacturing activities for Denso North America locally and for liquid coatings specifically in a variety of markets for Winn & Coales global business activities. Denso’s Protal and Archco and SeaShield product lines are well-known and respected in the industry and this new facility should allow for expansion of its product offerings and capability to increase production of these products.
David Winn, the grandson of the founder and co-owner of Winn & Coales, was present at the grand opening ceremony. After a few words of perspective regarding the significance of this new facility, Mr. Winn and Denso North America’s President, Lucian Williams, cut the ceremonial ribbon officially opening the facility. Winn & Coales International will be celebrating its 137th year of operation and 90th anniversary of providing corrosion prevention products in 2020.
