Coastal Automotive is excited to announce our participation in Project DIAMOnD, which aims to provide local manufacturers with the means to produce emergency PPE in-house on an as-needed basis.
As part of our participation in the program, Coastal Automotive has received a Markforged Mark Two composite 3D printer with FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) and CFF (Continuous Fiber Fabrication) capabilities. During production, this will allow us to increase the strength of the plastic components we produce to a level comparable to aluminum.
Coastal Group, a family owned investment management company, has acquired Veecor, a Louisiana-based honeycomb packaging manufacturer. With the acquisition, Coastal Group has launched Coastal Honeycomb, LLC. The company will produce the lightweight, durable packaging material in Holland and create an initial 12 jobs.
