Doralco Expands Capacity in First Quarter
April 28, 2009

Doralco, based in Alsip, Ill., has announced it will be expanding its architectural cladding division with additional column cover manufacturing equipment and skilled craftsmen.

"We've been very fortunate to enjoy good growth in this economy; we attribute it to three things: the partnerships with our suppliers and customers; our team's commitment to always exceeding our customers' expectations; and our new product innovation," says Tom O'Malley, vice president of sales for Doralco.

According to a company statement, Doralco has had several windfalls in the past few years with new innovations in its exterior sunshade, grill, interior glass door rail and composite panel divisions. The company says the additional capacity is needed to handle increased demand for interior and exterior column cover solutions, including specialty metals, specialty shapes and its new perforated logo column covers.

"This new expansion just gives us another edge against our column cover competition and gives us the capacity to maintain one of the fastest turnaround times in the industry," says Brian Clifford, president of Doralco. "I know it's crazy, but we've actually been able to turn the economic downturn into new business through fresh thinking and only the best customers."
