The new facility required extensive engineering and design to replicate the company’s existing production process in Japan.


This expansion enables Hi-Tech Color, Inc. to reduce its lead time for products to customers and reduce its reliance on imported goods. Sitework included the installation of eight bioswales and two areas of underground storm water detention to keep the area environmentally sound.
