Plant Spartanburg

Integrated Paint Process (IPP).

In the paint shop, the plant’s Integrated Paint Process (IPP) technology integrates the primer coat process into the top coat process eliminating three process steps: primer, primer over and primer finish. Established in 2010, this more efficient method combined with the latest in robot application equipment, as well as a new ventilation technology yielded an ultra-high-performance paint shop that (in 2010) reduced the plant’s energy consumption by 30%. It also reduces the total amount of process time per vehicle by 80 minutes (This is a 40% increase in productivity).
