Premier Industrial, makers of Xtrabond sealants, XtraFlash flashing and XtraFoam, reports it recently made some significant equipment acquisitions to enhance its material flow and flexibility. The company added three high-speed cartridge fillers and two 75-gallon mixers to add to its capacity for 2010, says Derek Miller, president.

The supplier enjoyed high double digit growth in 2009, adding more than 20 new jobs at its plants in North Canton, Ohio, and Phoenix, Ariz. Miller notes that the company has expanded its business steadily over the past four years despite the recession.
