Spinnaker Coating celebrates eighty years

Troy, OH - May 15, 2008 - Spinnaker Coating, LLC is celebrating eighty years of industry-leading service. The Troy, Ohio-based company was founded and incorporated in 1928 as Brown-Bridge Mills. Herbert Brown and Perce Bridge used their Midwest work ethic to develop a company with a reputation for quality and service. From its humble beginning as a manufacturer of water sensitive conventional gummed papers and cloths, Brown-Bridge saw its family of products expand over the years into a variety of adhesive technologies including water sensitive dry gummed and heat sensitive papers. In 1997, the Company changed its name to Spinnaker Coating and began to focus almost exclusively on the pressure sensitive market.

“Today, many people have the idea that service is a luxury associated with the past. But, in reality, personal service matters more than it did in 1928, when Spinnaker was founded. The reason is that our world in 2008 moves far faster than it ever has, meaning that you need a supplier who is quick to react to your needs, is flexible, and who knows your company and what is important to your customers. This unparalleled level of customer service is what Spinnaker is totally committed to, and what has set up apart for eight decades,” said Brady Glett, VP Roll Products.

Today, Spinnaker manufactures pressure sensitive paper and film products in roll and sheet form from two facilities in Troy. The company’s distribution network also includes several slitting distribution centers across the country; the most recent SDC opened in New York this year.
