Blast-One, an industrial corrosion control & protective coating supply supplier, expands operations into Minneapolis.

Blast-One International announces a territory expansion into Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is the third interstate expansion since the company established its North American headquarters in Columbus, Ohio during the spring of 2011; the other location is in Indianapolis, Indiana.

With the move, Blast-One continues to expand its national influence in both the industrial corrosion control and painting industries. “Minnesota is an excellent match for us and provides tremendous opportunity for our blasting products, abrasives, and expertise to help preserve the state’s infrastructure,” said Brad Gooden, Vice President of Blast-One.

With a focus on heavy industrial blasting and protective coatings, establishing roots in the Midwest and coastal regions has been a vital component of Blast-One’s vision for long term success. “We’ve been eyeing Minnesota for a while,” said Gooden, “but our acquisition of RoboVent Finishing Solutions proved a fortuitous opportunity to establish ourselves there ahead of schedule.”
