Facility Expansion Shutdown Notification


To our Valued Customers:

In order to meet increasing demand for our adhesive products, Tangent is expanding its manufacturing operations at the Winsted CT location. By streamlining existing processes and adding new equipment, Tangent will increase capacity and create higher efficiencies to better serve its customers.

Our expansion activity will require a complete shutdown of production. To minimize the effect on customer deliveries, we will utilize our normal year-end holiday and maintenance shutdown for this purpose. Tangent will be closed from noon on Friday, December 21st through Tuesday, January 1st. No shipments will be made during this period. Tangent will reopen at 8:00 am (EST) on Wednesday January 2nd, 2013.

To ensure timely adhesive deliveries during the months of December and January, we request all our customers to place their orders as soon as possible, being mindful of the shutdown period. To allow time for manufacturing start-up and associated quality control procedures, the earliest that adhesive shipments can resume will be January 7th. Early order placement will allow us to properly schedule production to meet all customer priorities prior to and after our shutdown period. Thank you for your understanding and continued use of Tangent products.
