Pexa receive 2018 Manufacturer of the Year award

Pexa receive 2018 Manufacturer of the Year award

Congratulations to all the winners at the Halifax Courier Business Awards presented by TV legend Harry Gration at the awards dinner ceremony last Friday.

Pexa was nominated in 2 categories and we are very proud to have been awarded the title of 2018 Manufacturer of the Year 🏆

The award is for our new coatings production facility at our base in Halifax UK. Probably the newest (and maybe the smallest) paint production unit in the UK. The judges were supportive of our strategy to increase the number of aerospace coatings we blend on behalf of AkzoNobel, the World’s leading paint manufacturer. We are adding a facility to blend Aviox 77702 topcoats to our existing 58 series blending capability. This means we can produce coatings for any aircraft in any colour on a rapid turn round.

We are also increasing the number of coatings we produce under our own Megadex™ brand. In addition to our range of optical coatings we have commenced production of a chrome free washprimer Megadex™ CF2020 and we are actively looking for new high-value coatings technologies that we can produce in our facilities. We are aiming to get up to full capacity within a couple of years.

Thanks to the Halifax Courier for recognising Pexa in this way and for supporting the West Yorkshire business community.
