Permatex Moves Headquarters to Cleveland Area

The campus has room for Permatex to double the size of its headquarters to 700,000 square feet to accommodate new growth.

Permatex has moved its business operations from Hartford, Connecticut, to its Solon, Ohio, facility where manufacturing and distribution centers already are in place, the company said.

“We are very excited to move our headquarters to Solon, Ohio, and have all of our business leadership in one centralized location,” said Lee Burtelson, vice president and general manager, ITW Permatex. “The Solon facility is technologically advanced and will allow our business to develop and grow at an expedited rate. Having all of our personnel, from business operations to R&D, to manufacturing, in the same location gives us the ability to make decisions quickly and bring more products to market.”

The facility currently consists of a 180,000-square-foot distribution center and a 170,000-square-foot facility that supports the manufacturing and business operations. The campus has room for Permatex to double the size of its headquarters to 700,000 square feet to accommodate new growth.

The facility is home to 19 high-tech robots designed for the elimination of repetitive motion and to lighten the amount of heavy lifting done by Permatex employees, the company noted.

A division of ITW (Illinois Tool Works), Permatex markets a wide range of products under well-known ITW brand names such as Permatex, Fast Orange, Spray Nine, The Right Stuff, Threadlocker Gel Twist and Grez-Off.
