Vanberg Specialized Coatings Relocates to Kansas City, Kansas

Vanberg Specialized Coatings, a growing segment of Milamar Coatings, relocated its operation, to be co-located at the VersaFlex world headquarters and manufacturing facility in Kansas City, Kansas.

VersaFlex Holdings is the parent company of Oklahoma City-based Milamar Coatings. VersaFlex officials noted the company is an industry leader in 100% solids pure polyurea-based technology, which is used in the protection and repair of a wide variety of industrial, commercial and maintenance environments. This includes BRIDGE Preservation, which focuses on the protection and rehabilitation of highways, bridges, tunnels and rail infrastructure.

According to company officials, “this consolidation of operations highlights the synergistic opportunities created as VersaFlex continues strengthening and expanding its portfolio of best-in-class protective coatings and corrosion control solutions for commercial, industrial, agricultural, municipal, and military environments. Customers of Vanberg Specialized Coatings will benefit from increased manufacturing and distribution capabilities at the VersaFlex facility.”

"Each member of the Vanberg Specialized Coatings team has valuable experience in agri-business, and we are thrilled to announce that one-hundred percent of the staff was retained in this move within the Kansas City metro area,” Kyle Frans, General Manager of Milamar Coatings said.

“ They join a larger team of customer-focused talent and coatings formulation expertise within the VersaFlex operation. The combined strength helps us better support this rapidly growing brand as it continues delivering innovative, cost-effective and long-lasting repair, restoration and protection solutions that respect the values of agri-business," he added.

The relocation was completed during February 2019 and it emphasizes VersaFlex's steadily growing presence in Kansas City, officials noted. In 2017, VersaFlex acquired Raven Lining Systems and relocated its operation from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Kansas City.
