True Value unveiled new, modern upgrades to its True Value Manufacturing facility at a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by True Value executives and Mark Kownick, Mayor of the Village of Cary, Illinois.

“We will continue to expand True Value Manufacturing capabilities to offer improved efficiency, additional capacity and innovative products to meet growing consumer demand in paint,” said Chris Kempa, CEO of True Value.

The launch of the new paint-filling and packaging line will significantly increase the plant's ability to fill latex architectural paints up to 90 gallons per minute, said the company.

“In recent years, True Value has made significant operational investments like these to continue bringing best-in-class products to our retailers and their customers,” said Kempa.

The updated paint-filling automation line is implemented for the company’s coming EasyCare Limitless.

The new technology directly supports the upcoming launch of the company’s ultra-premium paint line, EasyCare Limitless.

“EasyCare Limitless sits alongside name brand interior premium paints at a lower cost for consumers,” said John Vanderpool, divisional president at True Value Manufacturing.

“In today’s market, our retailers and their customers can take advantage of our manufacturing capabilities to upgrade their homes with products designed to last that won’t break the bank,” said Venderpool.
