Axalta, a leading global company focused solely on coatings, will undertake a 30,000 square foot expansion of its production facility in Jacksonville, Texas.

According to company officials, the expansion is slated to be completed in the first quarter of 2019 and will increase Axalta's liquid industrial coatings production capacity in North America by approximately one million gallons annually.
