Permatex moves headquarters to 350,000 sq. ft. facility in Solon, Ohio

April 23, 2019
The state-of-the-art facility sits on a 40-acre campus and houses manufacturing, distribution, and business operations.

Permatex, a leading innovator in chemical technology for automotive maintenance and repair, has moved its business operations recently from Hartford, Connecticut, to its Solon, Ohio, facility where manufacturing and distribution centers are already in place. The new Permatex headquarters is located at ITW Permatex Inc., 6875 Parkland Blvd., Solon, Ohio, 44139. 

Lee Burtelson, vice president and general manager, ITW Permatex, announced the new headquarters, noting, “We are very excited to move our headquarters to Solon, Ohio and have all of our business leadership in one centralized location. The Solon facility is technologically advanced and will allow our business to develop and grow at an expedited rate. Having all of our personnel, from business operations to R and D to manufacturing, in the same location gives us the ability to make decisions quickly and bring more products to market.”

The facility currently consists of a 180,000 sq. ft. distribution center, and 170,000 sq. ft. facility that supports the manufacturing and business operations. The campus has room for Permatex to double the size of its headquarters to 700,000 sq. ft. to accommodate new growth. The facility is home to 19 hi-tech robots designed for the elimination of repetitive motion and to lighten the amount of heavy lifting done by Permatex employees.
