Tru-Tone E-Coating Facility Locating in Lexington Will Create 120 Jobs

Schrader Commercial Properties was pleased to represent the landlord, WT Young, Inc., in leasing 1325 Baker Court to Tru-Tone Finishing, Inc. They will bring 120 new jobs to Lexington.

Tru-Tone Finishing Inc., a family owned provider of industrial e-coating, plans to create 120 jobs as it establishes a Lexington facility, Gov. Matt Bevin announced today.

“Tru-Tone’s exciting announcement is further evidence that our automotive and industrial sectors continue to attract strong, thriving companies to Kentucky,” Gov. Bevin said. “Our logistical advantages, strong workforce and increasingly business-friendly climate, have made the commonwealth a popular destination. Tru-Tone’s story of sound family stewardship and intelligent, steady growth is an example worth honoring and emulating. We are grateful for their decision to invest their human and financial capital in Kentucky.”

With more than a quarter century of experience, Tru-Tone offers e-coating, powder coating and some finishing processes for a variety of industrial clients. The company will initially implement an e-coat metal finishing process to serve the surrounding region at an existing 70,000-square-foot building on Baker Court. Tru-Tone representatives expect that line to open this summer, with powder coating capabilities added in 2019. Ultimately the Lexington plant will operate three 35-employee shifts.
