One of the world’s largest producers of silicones has selected Group O as a strategic partner to manage the filling, packaging, warehousing, and distribution of its construction silicone products.

Using the latest German automation, technology and equipment, Group O will receive the bulk product through reusable fluid-bag containers, and package it into drums, pails, sausage packs, and cartridges using ultramodern filling machines and packaging automation, a news release says. 

 A new state-of-the-art, climate-controlled color lab will ensure quality and consistency by creating an ever-expanding lineup of custom colors for silicone products. This complete line of building-envelope silicone solutions for roof coating, air and water barriers, architectural coatings, weather sealing, residential glazing, insulating glass, and structural glazing can be found throughout the construction industry, the release says.

Group O will manage the fulfillment and distribution of orders to its new partner’s construction customers across the country and internationally out of its 117,000 square-foot facility at 7300 50th St., Milan, the release says.

New partnership means new jobs
