E.V. Roberts (Carson, Calif.), a distributor, manufacturer and packager of adhesives, sealants and surface treatments for aerospace, composites, electronics, automotive and other specialty industrial applications, is emphasizing at CAMX its plans to open a new distribution facility in late 2014 to service its growing customer base in Atlanta, Ga. The new E.V. Roberts location effectively cuts delivery time in half and brings additional technical support and service to the East Coast. For those in need of same-day delivery of materials with air, weight and temperature control restrictions, the distributor has already lined up couriers to meet those stringent requirements and a will-call for those customers who choose to use their own transportation. The facility has already been approved for AS9120 certification. It is equipped with 400 ft2/37m2 of cold room and freezer storage.
