Bolt Construction Adds Titan Equipment to Painting and Coating Operation

New Blast Room and Paint Booth Will Provide Significant Upgrade in Both Processes; Will Help Bolt Generate Additional Revenue Streams

IVYLAND, PA (December 7, 2023) – Titan Abrasive Systems, a premier designer and manufacturer of  quality surface preparation, surface finishing, and sandblasting equipment, announces the purchase of a fully equipped blast room and paint booth by Bolt Construction, Inc., a general contractor specializing in pipe fabrication and plant construction.

Both the blast room and paint booth will be located at the company’s headquarters in Youngstown, Ohio.

According to Todd Miller, president of Bolt Construction, the new Titan equipment will be instrumental in streamlining internal operations and efficiencies to help the company maintain a competitive edge in the fabrication and piping industries. These new purchases will also play a part in helping Bolt bring in components from companies in other industries, allowing the painting and coating division to generate new revenue streams.

The blast room measures 16′ x 16′ x 50′ and includes a mechanical abrasive recovery system with a 16′ cross auger. It is also accompanied by a 14,000-cfm dust collection system. The paint booth is the same size and includes a heated air makeup unit for paint curing.

Miller noted that the new equipment was necessary to bring the company’s core operations up to speed.

“Since we specialize in the fabrication of pipe and structural components, painting and coating play a significant role in the operation of our business,” he noted. “A critical step in that process is the abrasive blasting that’s used to create an ideal surface for optimal paint adhesion.

“This new equipment brings both the blasting and painting processes up to an entirely new standard of quality and efficiency. And it opens the door for us to take on outside projects with complete confidence that we can deliver superior results.”

Bolt will take delivery of the equipment in spring 2024, with an initiation date of June 1 for the first products to roll through the booths.
