Mar 18, 2009

ITASCA, IL � March 2009 � Kester announces that it recently completed an expansion project at its Itasca, IL headquarters facility to dedicate more floor space to Solder Paste and Tacky Soldering Flux products.�

The expansion project increased Kester's usable floor space for its highly engineered products lines by more than 3,000 sq ft. The scope of the project was centered on improving the environmental control for these critical products, and to ultimately improve product quality as a result.
