OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (WVLT) — One year after announcing a six million dollar expansion, Protomet Corporation held a grand opening ceremony Tuesday.

The company’s facilities are now double the size, and they’re adding 30 jobs.

They co-located a business called 4 Final Finish. It was a finishing operation that previously ran in a separate facility.

They help other companies develop and get products out on the market.

Protomet works closely with the automotive, aerospace, boating, and homeland security industries.

“We’re having a lot of new opportunities come open as we combine our operations with the finishing. It allows us to do things strategically that were previously just not possible,” says President Jeff Bohanan.

Bohanan says Protomet Corporation takes 200 products to market each year.
