Hentzen Coatings Lab Renovation, located at 6937 West Mill Road in Milwaukee, is a manufacturer of high strength paint and coatings. Hunzinger Construction Company was hired to provide preconstruction services and general contracting for this 9,000 SF renovation. Strass-Maguire & Associates, Inc. an engineering firm from Mequon, WI served as the project designers.

The Hentzen Coatings lab renovation was completed in three phases to minimize any disruption to existing occupants and operations throughout the project. The renovation was also complicated by the facility’s many additions completed over the several decades since the building was originally built. The renovation involved the modernization of an existing lab, product testing, research and development facility and office space within the headquarters and the production facility. The new lab features state-of-the-art working and testing environments for the company’s technicians and scientists as Hentzen continues to be at the forefront of emerging coating technologies as is evidenced by their concentration on reducing emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (V.O.C.’s) and the continual redevelopment of environmentally friendly coating systems.

This 10,500 square foot research laboratory is charged with the development of new liquid coating technologies for the Defense and General Industrial markets, as well as the production of small-quantity coating batches to meet specialized customer requirements.

Steve Hentzen, Vice President of Operations at Hentzen Coatings states, “This unique, creative environment for chemists and formulating specialists fosters the development of innovative coatings technologies for years to come.”
